Guam - The Guam Preservation Trust lauds the achievement of 14 Guam students who competed in the 2011 National History Day at the University of Maryland this month. Each year National History Day recognizes each states, and territories outstanding students.

Awards are given to the students that garner the top points in their respective division.

Marten Lai and his partner, Lawrence Alcairo - both recent graduates from Father Duenas Memorial School - won the Captian Coskey Naval Award given to the best entry on naval history. "It was an excellent experience I think we made Guam proud because my partner and I were the only ones who walked up to get the award," said Lai. "And it just kind of made Guam known that of our history and walking down everyone was like, 'Good job, Guam!' and they were patting our backs."
