VIDEO: Jerri Quinata Wins SMG’s Canopies on Parade Contest


Guam – The Biba Guam theme and the artistry of Jerri Quinata and her family helped her to win Sorensen Media Group’s Canopies on Parade contest.


The competition was sponsored by SMG, Ambros Inc. and Carquest. Quinata won a summer Budweiser package that includes a Budweiser grill, cooler and five cases of Budweiser. Quinata also received a $500 check.

Quinata’s decorated canopy was chosen out of 8 contestants who participated in the Canopies on Parade contest during the island’s Liberation Day Parade. Quinata not only decorated the exterior of her canopy, but with the help of family, she also set up a Biba Guam theme inside, putting on display some of her family’s treasured collections.

“One table had a hut and some latte stones from family members also that wanted to join in with our fun. So we just kind of did the Guam thing, the Biba Guam and threw in a lot of our decorations at home on top of whatever we can create,” says Quinata.

Quinata says she plans to throw a celebration dinner with her family and friends with all her cool Budweiser products. She says she will share her prize money with her family as well.
