AWARDS MANUAL
2012 EDITION

PREPARED BY 2012 NATIONAL AWARDS COMMITTEE

PREFACE
There are many different factors that motivate individuals and groups. These include financial reasons, power, achievement, opportunity for advancement, the ability to contribute; but one major factor is the power of RECOGNITION. We, at the National Awards Committee, are aware that awards are an excellent supplement to almost any recognition program. JCI Members who are recognized for their abilities and their contributions to their local organization are more likely to be happy, content and motivated; they will also continue striving for excellence in their desire to excel. We believe that the memberships inherent desire for accomplishment is the spark that lights the fire from which JCI Philippines derives the warmth that sustains it. Because of our individual contributions to our local organizations, the JCI movement in the Philippines has, since 1955, maintained its glorious tradition of rewarding excellence that continues to shine until this day.

SECTION ONE: RULES & REGULATIONS


I. INTRODUCTION: WHY THE NEED FOR AWARDS?
To recognize and honour outstanding achievement in pursuance of the purposes of Junior Chamber by local organization and individual members, Junior Chamber International (JCI) Philippines has instituted a formal system of granting awards and recognition. This system hopes to bestow recognition to deserving individuals and local chapters for outstanding performance, to provide motivation to the award winners, and as a primary gesture of appreciation by the national organization to the winners for their excellent work done during the fiscal year.

II. BRIEF HISTORY OF THE JCI PHILIPPINES AWARDS PROGRAM


The history of Junior Chamber International (JCI) awards for the Philippines goes back to the very first years of the organization; the evolution of the program follows that of the organization itself. At the International Councillor's Meeting (now called General Assembly) of Junior Chamber International in 1947, it was decided how many awards should be presented at the next Congress and for which activities the awards should be designated. Initially, JCI presented just two awards the New Zealand Award for Outstanding National Work and the Unit (JCI Local Organization) Membership Extension Award presented by Canada. At the 6th JCI World Congress held in 1951 in Montreal, Canada, the Awards Commission presented a program with more specific rules for qualifications. Also, an awards judging panel was mentioned for the first time. The year 1954 brought big changes and new ideas. JCI introduced the criteria for judging the awards and the grouping of awards into categories for Individual, Chapter and National members. During this year, a Certificate of Merit was presented for the first time, recognizing that sometimes more than one entry could be worthy of merit. Following JCIs structured awards program in 1954, JCI Philippines instituted its first awards system in 1955 during its 7th National Convention in Bacolod City. At that time, the National Board served as the Committee on Awards, headed by then National President Amelio R. Mutuc, which gave out the first twenty awards for outstanding chapters and individuals. The presentation of the awards at the National Convention has always been a highlight, although the ceremonies have undergone some changes. From the years 1961 to 1974, corporate entities sponsored the awards program during the same period. From 1974 onwards, it became the responsibility of the National Records and Recognition Committee to provide for a permanent system of handing. In 2002, the Junior Chamber International (JCI) General Assembly, during the Las Vegas World Congress, decided to develop the e-Awards system a web-based tool that allows members to submit electronic award entries. This was pilot-tested during the simultaneous International JCI Area Conferences and World Congress in 2003. Consequently, in 2004, all entries during the Asia Pacific Conference and World Congress were also submitted electronically. When JCI adopted a system to cascade the e-Awards web-based tool to the entire National Organizations in 2004, the National Board of the JCI Philippines adopted e-Awards system for all the local and national conferences of the JCI Philippines. However, since JCI Philippines was unable to procure the web-based software from JCI, the National Records and Recognition Commission opted to follow the format of the JCI e-

4 Awards system during this year. The following year with the numerous technical problems that involved e-awards communications between JCI and JCI Philippines, which threatened to endanger the entire e-Awards program of JCI Philippines, the 2005 NRRC Chairman opted that the submission of the various bids in CDs format was done. This was also a transition in preparation for an on line bids that gave the impetus for the 2006 National Records and Recognition Commission to embark on an ambitious program of setting-up a completely new e-Awards software entirely independent from JCI which JCI Philippines is now using up to the present. This was also the time when JCI Philippines awards categories were entirely aligned with those of JCI.
