What Makes an Outstanding Filipino?
In its effort to highly recognize professionals who are active servants to the country, the Metrobank Foundation grants ten citizens an award — the most prestigious given for excellence in the sectors of the academe, police, and military. As a career-service award, the Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos award looks into the accomplishments and services rendered by a person during his or her line of duty and beyond. It celebrates those who inspire lasting positive change through concrete contributions to their communities. An awardee must be one who lives by the values of patriotism, integrity, courage, and social responsibility that are worth emulating by fellow Filipinos.
10 Outstanding Filipinos — four teachers, three soldiers, and three police officers — will each receive the award this year.
