2012 Philippine Civil Service Anniversary Essay Writing Contest

Written By Jane Miranda on Monday, July 9, 2012 | Monday, July 09, 2012

A. Rationale
During the 2011 Philippine Civil Service (PCS) Anniversary, an Essay Writing Contest was initiated to increase the awareness of public servants of their roles in providing effective, efficient and excellent service. The theme was “Kawani, Kaya Mong Maging Lingkod Bayani.”
In order to sustain and generate more of such awareness, the Essay Writing Contest shall be held every PCS Anniversary bureaucracy-wide. This year’s theme, “Kawani, Ikaw ay Isang Bayani,” indicates a leap in the status of the public servant from merely being motivated to be a “servant-hero” to that of being a proclaimed “hero.” This underscores the recognition given to the important work of every public servant.

B. Qualifications
The contest is open to all government employees, regardless of status, except Civil
Service Commission employees and their relatives within the 3rd degree of consanguinity or affinity.
Those who are employed under job order or contract of service are not qualified.
C. Theme
1. The theme for the contest is “Lingkod Bayani Working for Gender Responsive, Accessible, Courteous and Effective Public Service.” The participants must answer the question, “As a Lingkod Bayani, how can you contribute to and ensure a gender responsive, accessible, courteous and effective public service?”
This year’s theme for the essay fosters an understanding of how gender inequalities are compounded in the Philippine society and an appreciation of a public servant’s role in identifying the barriers women and men face in accessing public services and developing strategies to overcome them.
