Every March, before the current school year ends, Muntinlupa chooses its Sampung Ulirang Mag-aaral ng Muntinlupa or Muntinlupa's Ten Outstanding Students (MOST). The award was given last March 23, 2007 at the Fresnedi Sports Complex.
It all starter in 1994, when Mayor Jaime R. Fresnedi was still vice mayor, the annual awarding of MOST has become a highlight in every graduating high school student of Muntinlupa. The MOST award is intended to encourage students and give them inspiration to excel in their studies, to give importance to the inherent intelligence and talents of students of Muntinlupa, to boost the participation of students in community service, and to support the objectives of the city government to develop the youth.
Here's what I envy most; part of the prize given to the winners of the MOST is a P25,000 per semester to help pay for the graduation tuition fee for four years, as long as the student is able to maintain academic excellence.
Here are the MOST 2007:
