Online voting was also held where 6,802 votes were gathered. The top two entries that garnered the most number of votes are:

  • 2,205 votes or 32% of the total votes

    The Anti-Oppressive Pedagogy, UP Visayas

“The public appreciate programs that address very practical concerns, things that affect them directly,” observed Gigi Go of Newsbreak. “It is good that the favorites in the online voting are not among the jury's choices. The awards then showcase more programs or projects worth replicating in other LGUs,” she added. Another member of the jury was Lito Arlegue, Executive Director of the Council of Asian Liberals and Democrats (CALD).

The Liberal Project was organized by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF) as part of It’s All About Freedom campaign. FNF is a German political foundation that promotes participatory democracy, human rights and free trade. It is currently celebrating its 25 years in the Philippines.
