The Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO) Awards Foundation, together with its partner, Coca-Cola Foundation, is calling for entries for the special digital edition of its annual TAYO awards particularly recognizing youth groups that mobilized in response to coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).

In a statement Sunday, Coca-Cola said interested clubs, groups, organizations, and societies may accomplish the online registration form for the “TAYO 18: Bayanihan Run” and submit their digital entries on or before August 18, 2020.

This year’s screening and selection processes will also be done online in keeping with social distancing measures and quarantine protocols.

“This year, instead of accepting nominations for multiple categories, the 18th TAYO Awards will have one distinct category in honor and recognition of the ‘Bayanihan’ spirit of youth organizations whose programs and projects have responded to the pandemic and the enhanced community quarantine,” the statement reads.

The TAYO Awards is open to formal and non-formal youth organizations, which consist of at least five members under 30 years old and have been active since April 2020.

Application is free and organizations can submit multiple entries so long as they are of different projects or programs.

“For the past 18 years, the TAYO Awards has recognized and supported youth organizations that go beyond empowering communities. Its awardees and finalists receive PHP50,000 and PHP20,000 seed grants, respectively, to help fund their ongoing projects or start new ones,” the statement elaborated.

In partnership with Coca-Cola Philippines, the TAYO Awards Foundation also bestows the Coke Barkada Award to youth groups whose projects are geared towards environmental and educational stewardship.

A beacon of the company’s vision of building a better-shared future, this year’s Coke Barkada Award recipient will get an additional PHP30,000 grant to be used for sustainable project implementation. (PNA)
