Kabalikat Award

Update: My colleague from CITE, Roy, who was at the awarding ceremony in Manila, says that we got the National Kabalikat Award 2008 for the Institution Category.

Today, the Philippines's Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) will hand out the 2008 Kabalikat Award. According to the TESDA website:

The Kabalikat Award is an annual institutional award hosted by TESDA. This Award aims to recognize and honor outstanding partners in the promotion and enhancement of technical education and skills development.

The Award is conferred to outstanding local government units, institutions and industry for their contributions in the promotion and development of the country’s middle level manpower. Said contribution maybe in the form of technology/competency sharing, donation of training machines and trainees, on the job training and social support services to manpower development.

My school, CITE, is one of the nominees. We will know soon if we get the National Kabalikat Award. If we do, CITE will have won it twice in ten years (the first time we got it was in 1998).
