Deferment of the 2020 Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos Award

Since its inception, the Metrobank Foundation, Inc. (MBFI), through the annual Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos, has sought to uphold a culture of excellence by recognizing exemplary public servants in the academe, military, and police sectors. Last November 2019, we launched the 2020 cycle of the OF Award, and conducted a nationwide series of information campaigns and nominations to search this year’s batch of laudable teachers, soldiers, and police officers.

In the midst of these activities, we suddenly find ourselves confronted by the challenges brought about by COVID-19 pandemic that has adversely affected every Filipino’s lives. We thus took the necessary measures and followed protocols in containing the spread of the virus.

While alternative solutions were considered to carry out the proceeding phases of the Award, and even as we acknowledged the hard work of everyone who submitted their nominations, our continuous monitoring of our national situation has brought us to a difficult decision to defer the 2020 Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos. We believe that the health and safety of everyone takes precedence during these challenging times.

We will wait for the right time for the Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos Award to return. Until then, we stand in solidarity with the government, all sectors, and the Filipino people in seeing an end to this pandemic.

Should you have other questions regarding this decision, please contact us through all our social media accounts. You may also send an email to [email protected].

MBFI is praying for everyone to remain healthy and safe. Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
