Project K in GALING AWARDS 2006
In line with Lipa City’s 59th Foundation Day Celebration, the City Community Affairs Office, in cooperation with Project K, launched the first division-wide search for most outstanding public schools and teachers. Dubbed as G.A.L.I.N.G. Awards (Guro: Ang Lipenong Ipinagmamalaki ng Gobyerno), the affair marked the start of the city’s week-long celebration and was held on the 13th of July 2006 at Lipa Plaza Independecia.
This activity was conceptualized in recognition of the public school teachers’ efforts in contributing to the literacy development of Lipa City. The nominees, both from the elementary and secondary levels, were carefully selected and judged by a special screening committee headed by Atty. Agripino Bravo of the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO). Hon. Mayor Vilma Santos-Recto led the awarding ceremonies along with Dr. Corazon Abansi, Executive Director of Project K. Plaques of recognition and cash incentives were conferred to each of the contest winners.
