The Golden Crescent Consortium of Peace Builders and Affiliates (GCCPBA) is once again holding the selection and screening process for the 2014 Golden Crescent Achievement Awards among fourth year and graduating students of secondary schools in Zamboanga City.

Prof. Ali T. Yacub, AL-Haj, GCCPBA president,  disclosed that the group is now preparing for the selection process for deserving awardees for this year.

The 2014 Search for Golden Crescent Achievement Awards includes the following: Golden Crescent Achievement Award for Academic Excellence which is automatically bestowed to a Graduating Class Valedictorian. Recipient is disqualified to apply for the next award but has to submit an accomplished form; Golden Crescent Award for Leadership which is open for the top five leaders of the graduating Class excluding Class Valedictorian. Nominees of the school will pass necessary documents and must undergo an interview on February 15, 2014, and the Golden Crescent Achievement Award- Founders Choice-which is automatically given to any graduating student who represented the country in any parts of the world.

As per agreement entered into by GCCPBA with the Department of Education-Schools Division of Zamboanga City signed on August 7, 2012 , the expansion of the awards gave more young leaders the opportunity to be recognized.

One’s significant contribution to peace and development through their own leadership skills gave these young people the experience to be of service to fellowmen amid the emerging cycles of violence that our nation and city is facing.

The Golden Crescent Achievement Awards in its more than 40 years of recognizing young leaders continues to be of help to the community through various engagements.

The nominees from all the secondary schools’ graduating class for the Golden Crescent Achievement Awards will have to submit necessary documents on February 10, 2014 until 5:00 PM at the Office of the Student Regent, University Student Council (USC) of Western Mindanao State University (WMSU).

After the screening, only qualified applicants will advance to the interview stage on February 15, 2014. Schools will be notified of the recipients of the award. — Aldrin Bucoy-Abdurahim
