About the Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos
The Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos is the most prestigious career-service award for Filipino exemplars in the academe, military, and police sectors.
It is a career-service award; meaning, it looks into the entire professional career of the person—all their accomplishments and services rendered, whether big or small, done while in the line of duty and even beyond, from the moment they started working up to the present time.
The Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos recognize 10 Filipino exemplars composed of 4 teachers, 3 soldiers, and 3 police officers.
A Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipino award is conferred for being an exemplary public servant—but more importantly, an Outstanding Filipino is worthy of such recognition because he/she is an active agent of positive change and influence in their communities.
An Outstanding Filipino is a model of excellence in his/her profession, thriving amidst challenges with dignity and confidence. He/she must have made a long-lasting positive impact, as well as concrete contributions to the onward development of communities. He/she must also display patriotism, integrity, courage, and social responsibility – the universal values that Filipinos are defined by.
Being conferred the award gives the awardees the opportunity to bask in the limelight—and quite rightfully so, as their exemplary integrity, dedication to their chosen professions, and service to their communities are worth noting, emulating, and celebrating.
Each Outstanding Filipino shall receive a PhP 1 million cash prize, a trophy, and a gold medallion.
