President Benigno S. Aquino III honored seven individuals who were chosen The Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) of 2012 in ceremonies held at Malacañang on Wednesday.

The TOYM is the Philippines’ most prestigious awards search for young men and women between the ages of 18 to 40 whose selfless dedication to their profession or vocation has resulted in significant contributions to the welfare of their countrymen as well as to the advancement of their fields of endeavor.

The President, who was joined by proponents of TOYM, namely: the TOYM Foundation represented by its vice chairman Lorenzo Tan; the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Philippines led by its president Randolf Ivan Ruste; and the Gerry Roxas Foundation represented by its chairperson Judy Roxas; led the awarding of trophies to this year’s TOYM awardees.

The 2012 TOYM awardees are: Democratic Independent Workers’ Association (DIWA) Partylist Representive Emmeline Aglipay for Public Service; Warren Baticados for Veterinary Medicine; Emelio “Chieffy” Caligdong for Sports; Abelardo David for Community Occupational Rehabilitation; Ivan Anthony Henares for Heritage Conservation; Rodrigo “Jiggy” Manicad, Jr. for Broadcast Journalism; and Allan “apl.de.ap” Pineda for Contemporary Music.

In his speech, the President lauded this year’s awardees for “advancing and excelling in their professions and advocacies” as he assured all Filipinos “that in the future, there will be no shortage of brilliance in this country—that there will be people who can carry our collective quest forward to accomplish permanent change in our country and people.”

“Beginning today, you are no longer merely private individuals, but symbols—symbols that clearly show our countrymen and the rest of the world that the Filipino is world class, and that, no matter how successful he or she becomes, the Filipino never loses the spirit of bayanihan, and always comes back to help his fellowmen. This is what we see in the people we honor today,” the President said. 

He challenged the awardees to “do more” as with this prestigious award heralds that “the best of your work is still to come.”

“To our awardees today: the best of your work is still to come: you are going to be a vital part of our nation’s future. And so I am here today not merely to award you, but to personally challenge you to do more,” the President said. 

“What I have learned as president is that no single person, no single entity, or corporation, or government can manage the full-scale turnaround of this country on their own. We need each Filipino to do their part. So I say to you apl, Em, Warren, Chieffy, Jiggy, Archie, and Ivan: this country needs you to continue being creative, excellent, and relevant,” he added. 

“You are no longer just artists, politicians, medical professionals, athletes, champions of heritage, or journalists; you are inspirations to our countrymen, and your continued pursuit of excellence will tell our people that the fight to bring this country to prominence continues,” the President said.

He urged the awardees to go back to their professional lives energized and revitalized than ever before to “show our countrymen and the world just how outstanding the Filipino is.”
