EDISON Ong National “EON” Awards
Flagship Project Description. ABOUT THE EON ROTARACT AWARDS
The Philippines has ten of the most vibrant Rotaract programs in the world. Through simple and effective service projects, Rotaract Clubs in the Philippines further the goals of Rotary International as true Rotary Service Partners.
Rotary International annually bestows the Rotaract Outstanding Project Awards (ROPA) to Rotaract clubs worldwide whose projects exemplify excellent humanitarian work. Over the decades, dozens of Philippine Rotaract Clubs have been recipients of the ROPA for creating powerful, visible, and sustainable changes in their communities.
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Rotaract program, the Rotary Club of Manila Magic sought to replicate the ROPA at a local scale through this national search for outstanding Rotaract service projects and named it in honor of one of the Godfathers of Philippine Rotaract, Rotarian EDISON “MAGIC” ONG. PP Magic’s life and service inspired the many activities of Rotaractors in the Philippines today, including the Pilipinas Rotaract Convention (PROCON), Magic Badminton Cup, and the Pilipinas Multi-District Information Organization (Pilipinas MDIO). The first EON Rotaract Awards was held last March 13, 2018 in collaboration with the Rotaract Club of Manila.
Now on its 2nd year, the EON Rotaract Awards is looking for refreshing takes on solving complex social problems. It believes that young Filipino ingenuity is key to finding practical, scalable solutions that any ordinary citizen can take part in. By showcasing inspiring service projects, the EON Rotaract Awards invites all Filipinos to participate in nation-building in demonstrable ways.
