The search for model overseas Filipino worker (OFW) families in Western Visayas is now open.
The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) announced it is now accepting nominations of candidates.
Rey Pigar, OIC of OWWA Region 6, said nomination forms are available in their office at the Lingkod Bayan Center, Robinson’s Mall, Iloilo City.
The search, which started in 2004, has recognized model families whose lives are worth emulating.
Pigar said the regional search will be held in September with the winner competing in the national search the following month.
The search has two categories, namely: land-based and sea-based OFW families.
Labor and Employment Regional Director Ponciano Ligutom is the chairman of the selection committee. (PNA)
