Winners of the court's inaugural Sketch Artist have been announced. 

The District Court of Guam and Guam Bar Association hosted a unique contest for aspiring court sketch artists in conjunction with 2018 Law Week.  High school students and adult members of the public registered for the contest online and sketched an aspect of any public court proceeding at the District Court of Guam from April 1, 2018, through April 27, 2018.  Registered contestants submitted their original artwork of any size to the court’s Clerk’s Office by the deadline on May 1, 2018. 

The contest had two divisions, one for high school students, and another for adult members of the public.  The sketches were judged by a panel of three local artists, all from the island's legal community, and prizes will be awarded to the winning contestants in each division.
