OUTSTANDING SOCIAL WORKERS OF THE PHILIPPINES AWARDS
The search for Outstanding Social Workers of the Philippines is an annual award given by the Philippine Association of Social Workers, Inc. (PASWI) to Filipino social workers who excel in the different fields of professional practice. This award is also called as “Puso Award” in which its trophy is projecting two extending and open hands holding a heart and the PASWI seal. The heart symbolizes the social worker who committed to the practice of the profession.
The leaning hand represents the community the social worker serves while the supporting hand depicts the agency or organizations through which programs and services are delivered.
