Sun.Star Davao - - TOP STORIES -

THE search for the new set of Datu Bago awardees is on to rec­og­nize out­stand­ing in­di­vid­u­als who have sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions in the de­vel­op­ment of Davao City.

Ma­rina B. Rui­v­i­var of Datu Bago Awardees As­so­ci­a­tion yes­ter­day said dur­ing the weekly fo­rum at The An­nex of SM City Davao that they al­ready have a to­tal of 156 awardees since it started in 1969.

This year, they only re­ceived one nom­i­nee, thus, they are en­cour­ag­ing the pub­lic to nom­i­nate if they know some­one who pass the qual­i­fi­ca­tion and sub­mit the needed re­quire­ments.

“The search be­stows honor upon an in­di­vid­ual who has con­trib­uted to the de­vel­op­ment of the City of Davao with ex­em­plary com­pe­tence and ded­i­ca­tion and who best serves as a model of ex­cel­lence and as an in­spi­ra­tion to the res­i­dents of Davao,” she said.

The search is held an­nu­ally ini­ti­ated by the

Datu Bago Awardees Or­ga­ni­za­tion in part­ner­ship with the city gov­ern­ment of Davao. The award­ing usu­ally takes place dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tion of Araw ng Dabaw wherein the fi­nal list­ing will be based on the ap­proval of the city mayor.

Rui­v­i­var added that it is open to per­sons of any na­tion­al­ity, liv­ing or de­ceased, born in Davao City or have been res­i­dents in Davao City for at least 10 years. The liv­ing nom­i­nee must ac­cept the nom­i­na­tion. JCR (For full story visit www.sun­star.com.ph/davao/)
