UPAA opens nominations for ‘Distinguished Alumni Awards 2013’

The University of the Philippines Alumni Association (UPAA) has announced the search for nominees for the UPAA Distinguished Alumni Awards 2013.

The awards are conferred on alumni who have demonstrated in their chosen field of endeavor, exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions that bring about substantial benefits to society and distinct honor to the University. Recognition is given to achievements and contributions that impact the community in which the alumni are or have been active, whether this is at the local, national or international level.

Nominations for the awards will be accepted from any U.P. alumnus or alumni chapter until January 31, 2013. The award ceremonies will be held during the U.P. General Alumni-Faculty Homecoming & Reunion on Saturday, June 22, 2013 at Luciano E. Salazar Hall, Ang Bahay ng Alumni, U.P. Diliman Campus, Quezon City.

Each year, the University of the Philippines Alumni Association (UPAA) gives recognition to alumni achievers, as follows: UPAA Most Distinguished Alumna/Alumnus Award, UPAA Lifetime Distinguished Achievement Awards, UPAA Distinguished Alumni Awards, UPAA Distinguished Service Awards and UPAA Multi-Generation U.P. Alumni Family Awards.

Award nominations will be considered in such thematic categories as public service and good governance, poverty alleviation and human development, peace and social cohesion, gender equality and women empowerment, community empowerment, environmental conservation and sustainable development, entrepreneurship and employment creation, institutional or corporate social responsibility, culture and the arts, science and technology, education and health, or as defined by the achievements of a deserving nominee.

For the past few years, UPAA makes special effort to identify for nomination, unsung alumni achievers — those whose achievements in little-known corners of the country are exceptional but have remained unheralded and unrecognized.

For inquiries, please contact the UPAA Secretariat at 632-9206868, 632-9206871, 632-9206875 or email upalum.awards2013@yahoo.com. Visit the UPAA website http://www.upalumni.ph for complete details.
