2009 Search for the Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines

TOSP 2009: Call for Nomination


We would like to inform you that the 2009 Search for the Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines (TOSP) has officially started through the support of our partners, most especially the Commission on Higher Education (CHED)

TOSP is an annual search which honors Outstanding Filipino Students in MalacaƱang started in 1961. In recognizing the best students, the annual TOSP search looks for graduating college students who not only have excelled academically, but have dedicated their talents and leadership abilities in making a difference and becoming socially involved in their respective communities, organizations and fields of interest, for the greater good of their constituents and members.

Colleges and universities in Regions II, III, V, VI, VII, CAR, and NCR are under Regionalized Areas. Those situated in Regions I, IV-A, IV-B, VIII, IX, X and CARAGA, XI, XII, XIII, and ARMM are under Non-Regionalized.

For Regionalized Areas, all duly accomplished nomination forms and supporting documents (bid books) should be submitted to their CHED Regional Office for Regional Screening; for Non-Regionalized Areas, to the 2009 TOSP National Secretariat, c/o RFM Foundation, Inc., through their CHED Regional Office. Further details are mentioned in the Awards Rules, page vi.

The entire nomination kit can be downloaded here.

In starting the year, we hope to contribute to an optimistic environment, which we trust will infect the rest of the country. Submitting your nominees is enough reason to be positive and be hopeful. We can only imagine the rays of hope that emanate from all institutions that submit to our regional and directly to our national search.

hi aethen, kmsta na ?

nakakatuwa naman @ mayroon na namang isang matalino at modelong kabataan ang mabibgyang parangal..

pero mas higit akong natutuwa na nakilala ko ang isa sa kanilang last year awardee..at naging kaibigan ko pa..iyan ay walang iba kungdi IKAW.

sarap siguro ng feeling makatanggap ng ganito ano?

Aethen said...

Kuya Josh, the feeling of being honored as outstanding student is of the country is really indeed a rewarding experience but one should not flaunt about it. He/she should serve as a model of the Filipino students and youth as outstanding individual in the field or period in life. He/she must serve as an inspiration also to all.

Being one is just a bonus for doing good in school and in the community.

Inspire. Love. Serve.

Salamat kuya Josh sa lahat. mag-ingat ka din dyan sa desyerto.
