Genin Amiscaray, Silliman University (SU) Economics graduate (magna cum laude), made it to the top 30 in the national selection for the 56th Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines (TOSP).
TOSP recognizes students from around the country who “have personified academic excellence, exemplary leadership and deep sense of social responsibility, all anchored on good moral values.”
Reacting as a national finalist, Amiscaray said, “I will be up against the best of the best all over the country. However, what I truly love about TOSP is that the organization’s culture erases the mindset that we are in a competition.”
The top 30 was selected from 77 Regional Awardees and National Nominees for TOSP all over the country.
The Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines will receive their award from President Rodrigo R. Duterte at formal ceremonies in Malacañang.
Amiscaray and the other finalists will undergo an interview before a panel of judges convened by the National Executive Committee in February 2018.
The finalists will also participate in the TOSP National Program Week in which they will attend a formation program, including outreach and exposure activities.
Amiscaray thanked those who supported her “Heart for a Child” project during her Miss Silliman 2015 reign, which implemented feeding and reading activities for children.
