TAYO 21 Theme 

The theme for the 2024 TAYO Awards will center on makabayani, a play on the words makabayan which means love for one’s country, and bayani, which means hero. 

Through this theme, the Foundation envisions another decade of recognizing and celebrating the efforts of our makabayani in creating a positive impact in their communities. The Search also hopes to help the youth further appreciate the value of volunteerism and cultural diversity towards nation-building.

Co-presented by Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines Inc. and San Miguel Corporation, TAYO Awards is the Philippines’ premiere award-giving body that recognizes and supports the excellent contributions of youth organizations in the country. Since 2002, it has been the biggest platform to showcase young Filipinos’ dynamism and contribution to community development.
