Guam - Hundreds of students from all over the island attended the University of Guam's annual Charter Day festivities at the institution in Mangilao today. Various activities were held at the center courtyard where many enjoyed the displays, food and local entertainment.

Of the many events planned today included the Chamorro Language Competition, which was held at the UOG Field House. Assistant Professor Peter Onedera says more than a thousand students from Guam, Rota, Tinian and Saipan participated in the competition today.

"From last year we had 32 schools, this year we have 44 schools," Onedera told KUAM News. "It keeps getting bigger and better and of course this was the first year where we had the competition here at the field house. Before it was scattered throughout the buildings in our college, so we have it at the field house this year to accommodate the children from all the schools."

It has been 59 years since the University of Guam was first established.
