The BPSU Kagitingan Awards for Television is a recognition given to ten (10) Heroic television programs contained in each Academic Year of BPSU. These 10 programs may be from any kind or genre (news, entertainment, documentary, drama series etc.).
The recognition is based on the importance or values of heroism in its different faces. The overall indicator of the concept of “Kagitingan” is based on the standards of group of students that comprise the Electoral College.
Unlike the most award-giving bodies, BPSU Kagitingan Awards will only choose (10) heroic television programs in every award season or academic year. This is to give more recognition and highlight the value of Valor instead of the programs’ technical aspect. It aims to inculcate among the youth the values of valor, bravery, and heroism in the form of television shows.
The awarding will be held every Celebration of the Day of Valor, which is a declared National Holiday that will help to capture the interest of the public.
