The Judiciary of Guam is still accepting nominations for its Hustisia award.

The award recognizes a person or organization that has made a significant contribution to improving the administration of justice and good government.

To be eligible a person or organization must have done the following:

  • Fostered building public support for the judiciary
  • Promoted respect for the law and understanding of the judicial system
  • Encouraged civic responsibility and service
  • And volunteered time and talents to the court in serving the people of Guam.

Some of the many recipients of the award in the past are Former Speaker, now Public Auditor Benjamin Cruz, Attorney Joaquin Arriola, and retired federal magistrate judge Joaquin Manibusan, to name a few.

The theme this year is “Cornerstones of Democracy: Civics, Civility, and Collaboration.”
