METROBANK FOUNDATION AWARDS 10 OUTSTANDING FILIPINOS FOR 2018: PHP1 MILLION AWAITS EACH AWARDEE



In a press conference where I attended last August 9 in Quezon City, The Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos for this year 2018 have been revealed. As a career-service award for Filipino exemplars in the academe, military, and police sectors—ten (10) Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos were presented, consisting of 4 teachers, 3 soldiers, and 3 police officers to the members of the media. Each awardee will receive a cash prize of P1 million each (net of tax), a gold medallion, and a trophy.

The Qualifications for Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipino Awardee — 
A Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipino is recognized with these criteria:
  • Must have rendered service above and beyond his/her call of duty guided by the theme of “Beyond Excellence”. 
  • One's accomplishments must have inspired and influenced their peers as well as the people in their respective communities. 
  • Their works must have transformed a community with a lasting positive impact on people and on the country.
The awardees underwent a rigorous selection process and were selected from hundreds of nominations. A Board of Assessors, composed of members from the government, academe, military, and media sectors, pre-determined the semi-finalists through document review. The accomplishments of the semi-finalists were field validated by third-party organizations, the Philippine Social Science Council (PSSC) and the National Defense College of the Philippines (NDCP). The field validation determined 19 finalists whose work has inspired and influenced their peers as well as the larger community with a lasting positive impact.

The 19 finalists were interviewed by a multi-sectoral Final Board of Judges chaired by Senator Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara and co-chaired by Supreme Court of the Philippines associate justice Noel Tijam. The other members include: Department of Justice (DOJ) secretary Menardo Guevarra; Makati City mayor Mar-Len Abigail Binay-Campos; De La Salle Philippines president Br. Armin Luistro; Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP) chairman Manuel Pangilinan; Rockwell Land, Inc. president and chief executive officer Nestor Padilla; and veteran journalist Ma. Teresa Vitug.
