Unilab is another company that I look up to. Every year they run a contest called Unilab Ideas Positive, which is in search for the best health-related community project proposed by different college student groups. Last year, I'm proud to share that the grand prize was won by students from my alma mater, the University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P) wherein they have created a farm-in-the-city concept in Pasig that teaches the community to have their own sustainable source of vegetables. No need to spend so much in the market as the residents of San Joaquin in Pasig City were able to plant their own lettuce and kangkong.
This year, Unilab is having their search once again and they are down to 11 semi-finalists, 3 of which will emerge as the winners of the 2011 Unilab Ideas Positive campaign. The grand prize winner will get P100,000 seed money to start their project, P50,000 cash prize and P10,000 honorarium for the mentor. Of course, the greatest achievement of all is that they will be able to help a community make their health and sanitation better.
The two runners-up will get P75,000 seed money each, P30,000 cash prize and P5,000 honorarium for the mentors.
However, the finalists need our help! Part of the criteria is the number of likes/votes that they will get from their video. So this is where we all come in:
