The SEAMEO Service Awards were approved during the 38th SEAMEO Council Conference in Manila, Philippines for further implementation. The purpose of the SEAMEO Service Awards is to provide recognition and appreciation to staff members of the SEAMEO Units who have demonstrated exceptionally high level of achievement in such areas as work performance, innovation and creativity, professionalism and commitment that contribute to the success of the Organization's mission and goals. Each SEAMEO Unit will select annually the recipient of the SEAMEO Service Awards based on the agreed criteria. There are 2 types of the Awards; one for Individual Efforts and one for Team Efforts.
