This project aims to inspire with an initiative that will recognize seven modern-day Filipino heroes in line with the commemoration of Philippine Independence, last June 12, 2011.
The nomination mechanics for these modern-day heroes include a brief explanation (not more than 200 words) of his or her accomplishments and the reason why he or she is nominated. The nominations were emailed to to firstname.lastname@example.org until June 9, 2011 8:00 in the morning.
The nominated Pinoy should have made a significant and continuing impact on the Philippine society, serving as a local role model to their own communities. They should also be influential—even if their efforts have not gotten any publicity.
It's tough job for YP's to gather such numerous number of nominations—from loving parents, courageous law enforcers, devoted health workers, brilliant artists, magnanimous celebrities, exemplary athletes, astute youth leaders, inspirational public servants, to simple folk who have touched others with their kindness.
Now, the seven modern-day Filipino heroes are as follows (in alphabetical order):
Who will be the next seven Pinoy heroes? Who knows? You might be one of them in the future.
