The Philippine National Volunteer Service Coordinating Agency (PNVSCA) has extended the deadline from July 15 to Aug. 15 to give the public more time to submit nominations.

The SOV aims to recognize the contributions of individuals and organizations currently providing volunteer assistance for development and inclusive growth.

There are two award categories – the Volunteer Lifetime Achievement Award (VLAA) and the National Outstanding Volunteer Award (NOVA).

The search is open to individuals and organizations currently providing volunteer assistance in the Philippines.

Filipino citizens, Filipino or local chapters of foreign/international non-profit organizations, and Filipino or local chapters of foreign/international corporate organizations are qualified to join the search.

The VLAA is awarded to an individual or organization with consistent and outstanding volunteer service and whose achievement is regarded as an inspiration and role model in the field.

Individuals or organizations with exceptional contribution to the development agenda of the government resulting in positive outputs of volunteerism may be conferred the NOVA.

Nominations should be submitted on or before Aug. 15 to the Regional Search Committee chaired by the National Economic and Development Authority.
