MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) - Guinness World Records says it's recognizing an Upper Peninsula company as maker of the largest trophy on record.

The Mining Journal reports that Guinness has told QuickTrophy LLC of Marquette that it now holds the record.

Guinness says the trophy measures 22 feet, 6.5 inches tall and was presented to the Marquette Informal Longboarding Foundation and the NMU Skate and Snow Club on April 10, 2011.

The trophy's makers used 23 wood bases, 18 cups, 12 skater and star figurines and 48 columns.

QuickTrophy made the trophy for the world record-breaking skateboard parade at Northern Michigan University.

It's now on display at the university's Superior Dome.
