The Local Government of General Santos City through the Youth Affairs Development Office presents the GENERAL SANTOS CITY YOUTH ACHIEVER’S AWARD (GSCYAA) 2010 in a simple but very meaningful ceremony on December 20, 2010 at the Old Sangguniang Panlungsod, City Hall, General Santos City.
Right after the Invocation and National Anthem led by the GSC Government Employees Performing Arts- Choir Division, the very active Elmer D. Cequiña, GSCYAA Program Coordinator, delivered the Welcome Message. The amiable Allan Loi J. Villanueva was the program host.Hon. Bernadette Lou C. Dulay (Barangay Councilor, Apopong), Mr. Jovar G. Pantao (Awardee, GSCYAA 2004) and Joana Grace Banting-Lapore (Awardee, GSCYAA 2001) served as adjudicators. Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio gave us Certificates of Appreciation for our contribution. In behalf of Hon. Dulay and Mr. Pantao, I delivered the Adjudicator’s Message.
It was a tough challenge for us to determine this year’s winner. The stringent criteria guided us in rating the qualifications and accomplishments of the nominees. A series of interviews and deliberations were also conducted after the finalists were determined.
Out of the 25 Nominees from the different categories, five were chosen as this year’s winners. Presentation of finalists and announcement of winners were facilitated by Ms. Brianne S. Arreglado (Awardee, GSCYAA 2008), Mr. Michael Carbon (Awardee, GSCYAA 2009) and Mr. Allan S. Remedios (Awardee, GSCYAA 2000). Conferment of trophies and cash prizes was handled by Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio and SK Federation President Mac Alejandre M. Tablazon.
