Since it started in 2002, the TAYO Awards Foundation, Inc. has successfully established itself as the country’s only award giving body that recognizes and supports the outstanding contributions of youth organizations to the country.

To date more than a thousand youth organizations have joined the search and are now part of the growing youth network of the foundation. These exceptional youth organizations have contributed to the development of their local communities, schools and work place, through their innovative and valuable projects.

The TAYO awards search is accepting entries from interested youth groups, organizations, clubs and societies that are composed of at least 15 members, more than half of which are between 15-30 years old. Submitted project entries must be a recently concluded or an on going project or program by the organization.

The entries will be judged based on the following criteria: Impact of project entry on stakeholders; Harnessing the spirit of volunteerism and citizenship; Creativity and Innovation; and Sustainability and Effective use of Resources. Apart from the prestigious recognition, the winning organizations receive an especially commissioned trophy sculpted by Mr. Toym De Leon Imao, and a grant of Php 50,000.00 intended to fund new projects or continue their long term programs.

The TAYO Awards Foundation, Inc., The National Youth Commission, and the Office of Senator Kiko Pangilinan organize the annual search. The search is presented by The Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines and sponsored by the Philippine Center for Young Leaders in Governance, Starbucks, PAGCOR, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Agriculture, TeaM Energy, Jollibee, Bank of the Philippine Islands, Ninoy and Cory Aquino Foundation, SM Supermalls and SM Cares Foundation.
