The coronavirus pandemic has made it impossible to hold traditional graduation ceremonies and celebrations.

During this era of social distancing many graduating high school students and their families celebrated in their own special way. Last month, Triple J invited Guam’s 2020 High School graduates to be creative, express themselves and create a Tik-Tok video on how they celebrated graduation this year. Participants then posted, tagged, and submitted their video for their chance at a scholarship to any college of their choice.

On Wednesday, July 1st, Triple J Enterprises, Inc. presented checks to:

1st Place Winner 

Ella Pobre – 2020 graduate of Simon Sanchez High School will be attending the University of Guam this Fall – $3,000.00
