    2015 Gawad Lagablab

    BACKGROUND

    The Philippine Science High School National Alumni Association (PSHS NAA) has been celebrating the Gawad Lagablab since 1991. Excellence in academic performance, exceptional achievement in their chosen field of endeavour, and exemplary service to our community and our nation are the main criteria for the selection process. The subsequent staging of the awards were held in 1991, 1993, 1998, 2002, and in 2005, 2008, 2011. 

    OBJECTIVES

    The PSHS NAA confers the award to the alumni in recognition of outstanding achievements in their respective fields of endeavour. By bringing pride, honor, and prestige to PSHS, Gawad Lagablab recipients also serve as inspiration and role models worthy of emulation by both fellow alumni and students.

    The selection process also becomes an overview, both for the association and the school, of what its alumni have accomplished through the years.

    NOMINATION

          PSHS NAA members who have not been Gawad Lagablab awardees are eligible for nomination. But only NAA members of good standing can nominate or endorse a candidate for the awards.

          A non-winning finalist may be included in the next Gawad Lagablab nomination list upon approval of the nominee. There is no limit to the number of times that a nonwinning candidate may be nominated.

          All members of the Gawad Lagablab committee, members of the panel of judges, and all incumbent members of the PSHS NAA BOD are disqualified from being nominated as well as from nominating or endorsing a candidate.

    Dear fellow alumni,

    During the summer of 2013, "A National Alumni Convention", now more popularly known as ANAC, was launched successfully. This time around, your National Alumni Association will be calling for a constitutional convention, following the resolutions and recommendations culled from last year.

    Together as an alumni body, we endeavour to review the current Constitution and By-laws in order to arrive at meaningful and appropriate proposals for the revision of the existing PSHS NAA Constitution and By-laws. We will be guided by lawyers among our alumni in crafting the proposed revisions in the breakout sessions. The event's output will be brought forward to the General Assembly for ratification during the Alumni Homecoming in September. The over-arching objective is to come up with an instrument more responsive to the growing Pisay community, encompassing all alumni based both locally and internationally.

    This year's A National Alumni Convention: A Constitutional Convention, or ANAC 2, for short, will be held on 5 July 2014, Saturday, at the PSHS Main Campus in Diliman. This is to invite two (2) representatives per batch, from each campus, to please attend. All participants to the convention must be alumni of good standing, with updated membership dues either as Lifetime Members or with annual dues paid up on or before the event.

    Each batch may choose their representatives or assign a liaison officer in the meantime that they have not identified their participants. The programme and copy of the current Constitution and By-laws shall be sent to the batch representatives once confirmed. For those coming from the regions who may need it, we are looking to arrange for lodging in the campus dormitories in order to promote a real System-wide participation. Kindly finalise the names of your respective participants by way of reply to this letter, including their email addresses and contact numbers. The deadline for submission of the names of representatives will be on June 15, 2014.

    A post-convention fellowship will be held immediately after the event, venue to be announced in due course. Don't miss it!

    For any questions/clarifications, you can contact any of the ANAC2 registration committee, their email details provided below.
