The Philippine National Volunteer Service Coordinating Agency (PNVSCA) once again invites the general public to nominate individuals and organizations to this year’s Search for Outstanding Volunteers (SOV). The deadline of submission of nominations is on September 15, 2022.

Created in 2001, the SOV is an annual program which aims to recognize the contributions of the volunteer community to nation-building and sustainable development. SOV 2022 has the following categories:

  • Individual-Youth
  • Individual-Adult
  • Organization-Non-Profit
  • Organization-Corporate
  • Special Award for the Local Government Unit

The nomination forms and general guidelines are available at https://bit.ly/SOV2022NOMINATION and https://www.pnvsca.gov.ph/?page_id=3370

The public can also send their queries to info@pnvsca.gov.ph. Updates will also be posted on PNVSCA’s facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PNVSCA.

Launched in July, the Search culminates with an awarding ceremony during the celebration of the National Volunteer Month (NVM) in December.


Danica Pacardo is currently the Volunteer Service Officer II of the Policy, Advocacy, and Technical Services Division of the Philippine National Volunteer Service Coordinating Agency.
