About the MagPRO Awards:
The MagPRO Awards is a government-wide employee recognition program within the Executive Branch of the government of Guam. It is the highest and most competitive employee awards program bestowed by the Governor of Guam, which showcases the outstanding employees and programs of the government of Guam. The recognition and competition spans over 40 departments and agencies, and 55 occupational groups ranging from clerical, labor, trades, professional and technical positions. The various awards reflect individual and group performance, valor, cost savings, integrity, community service and sports.
The MagPRO Awards Program is an expanded version of the Magnificent Seven Program, the government-wide awards recognition which began in 1987. The general concept of the Magnificent Seven Program, commonly referred to as “Mag7,” has continued throughout the years. Many departments and agencies have adopted the Mag7 program and have tailored it to fit their own organizational needs. Past governors have added other award categories to the Mag7 and have implemented the program at a government-wide level under the titles of the “Excel” Program, the “MagHOPE” Program, and now the “MagPRO” Awards Program.
