Guam - The Guam Visitors Bureau presented 200 copies of the official Chamorro-English Dictionary to the Department of Education this morning.  A book will be given to each public school's Chamorro teachers, as well as to each of its libraries.  The donation is part of GVB's efforts to grow Guam as a cultural destination by keeping the Chamorro language and culture alive. 

Chamorro teacher Ron Laguana accepted the donation on behalf of DOE, and told KUAM News he appreciates the initiative because it "helps to support in the promotion and perpetuation of the Chamorro culture. The students and the teachers will really be appreciative of this book."

GVB also awarded a $14,000 grant-in-aid to the Department of Chamorro Affairs to defray the cost of printing the books.
