GVB Gives Money To Villages; Prepares For Key October Events


Guam- The Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) just celebrated its 40th anniversary last weekend and gave away prize money on Wednesday to three villages that placed in its tabletop competition at Skinner’s Plaza.

At Wednesday morning’s Mayors’ Council meeting, GVB Deputy General Manager Ernie Galito says the competition showcased products and things that each village is known for. He mentions the village of Merizo placed 1st in the competition and received $500 dollars. In addition, Agana Heights received $300 dollars and Yigo was awarded $150 dollars for placing 2nd and 3rd. Galito also presented a trophy for the People’s Choice Award.

“Our People’s Choice Award goes to the village of Umatac” said Galito. “We’re very proud and pleased to see that they got a lot of representation and a lot of familiar votes for Umatac. So we’re very pleased today to present them their trophy for the People’s Choice Award for the tabletop from the Guam Visitors Bureau.”

GVB is extremely busy this month as it prepares for a number of key events, including its China Outbound Market Symposium on October 14, the 2010 Guam Ko’Ko’ Road Race on October 17 and the 23rd Guam Micronesia Island Fair on October 15-17.
