Davao Region’s 2023 Search for Outstanding Volunteers accepts nominees

DAVAO CITY (PIA) - - The Search for the Outstanding Volunteers 2023 in the region is now open for nomination of individuals and organizations currently providing volunteer assistance worthy of recognition.

The National Economic and Development Authority Region (NEDA)-XI announced that the deadline of submission of nominations is on August 25, 2023.

The Search aims to recognize the noble acts of volunteerism by individuals, institutions and communities as vital partners in economic and community development.

The qualified individuals must be of Filipino citizenship, Filipino or local chapters of foreign/international non-profit organizations, and Filipino or local chapters of foreign/international corporate organizations.

The category for the Volunteer Lifetime Achievement Award (VLAA) is conferred upon an individual or organization having at least 25 years of consistent and outstanding volunteer service and whose achievement is regarded as an inspiration and role model in the field of volunteerism.

Another category for the Special Award for the Local Government Unit is conferred upon an LGU that implements outstanding volunteer programs or initiatives that promote the participation of civil society organizations or volunteer individuals in local governance.
