City has 11 SOCOB nominees
by Jessa Mardy P. Samidan / PIO

Eleven residents of Baguio were nominated for the 2019 Search for Outstanding Citizens of Baguio (Socob).

From the interview conducted in Aug. 3, the final list of Socob awardees will be determined and will receive the elite distinction given by the city government of Baguio to its residents during the annual Charter Day celebration of Baguio City every Sept. 1.

Mayor Benjamin Magalong issued Executive Order 23 creating the judging committee for the search composed of seven individuals following Ordinance 22-2016 amending previous ordinances which institutionalized the Socob as a continuing program of the city.

From several categories in the past, the search has sized down to only four categories, which are community service, culture and arts, professional service, and business.

Magalong himself was a recipient of the annual accolade in 2017 for the professional category while Engr. Bonifacio dela Peña, now the City Administrator, also received the award last year on the same category.

Nominees could be individuals from any status in life; professionals or those with blue-collar jobs, as long as he/she has “significantly contributed to the welfare, development, growth and prestige of the city and constituents by directly and actively initiating/implementing projects and programs.”

The nominee’s personal information, including educational background and scholarships if any; occupation and organizational affiliations; and awards and publication, local and abroad; are scrutinized by the nomination committee, and later by the screening and judging committees.

Nominees for the three-decade long search must be Baguio residents for at least 10 years, though not necessarily continuous, but still maintain ties with the city. He/she should not have been a previous Baguio Day awardee.
