BBFI extends submission of nominations to the
2013 Bagong Bayani Award
The Bagong Bayani Foundation, Inc. (BBFI) has moved the deadline for submission of nominations for the Search for the 2013 Bagong Bayani Awardees to 28 February 2014.
The Bagong Bayani Awards (BBA) is a national
search for the Philippines’ outstanding and exemplary Overseas Filipino
Workers (OFWs). The awards seek to recognize and pay tribute to our
OFWs for their significant efforts in fostering goodwill among peoples
of the world; enhancing and promoting the Image of the Filipino as a
competent, responsible, and dignified worker; and for greatly
contributing to the socio-economic development of their communities and
our country as a whole.
The Awarding Ceremony has also been moved to 03
June 2014 to make the Bagong Bayani Awarding Ceremony one of the
highlights of the events during the Migrant Workers’ Week, celebrated
in the first week of June.
The BBFI is a non-stock, non-profit organization
conceived to uphold the new heroes of our time, the overseas Filipino
workers. It works hand-in-hand with the Philippine Overseas Employment
Agency (POEA) and the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) in
paying tribute to the OFWs through the Bagong Bayani Awards.
