@ac_charania: 1st Nano-sat Constellation Mission Idea Contest, 1st place: Integrated Meteorological/Precise Positioning Mission

Here's the Nano-satellite Constellation Mission Idea Contest site where you can find out more about the winners and other finalists.  In addition to prize money and publication, the finalists were invited to present at the 2nd Nano-Satellite Symposium in Tokyo.  The rest of that symposium has been canceled because of effects of the recent earthquake, but per A.C. Charania's tweets, a second Nanosat Constellation Mission Idea Contest is planned for 2012.
