Everyone has places that are important to them. Places they care about.

This Place Matters is a national campaign that encourages everyone to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and their communities.

This competition is open to all Guam high school senior classes (one entry per school) to produce an original video (up to 10 minutes) to be judged by our island community.
