by Thelma C. Bicarme

Tuguegarao City (June 11) -- The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) recently opened the search for the 2010 Model overseas Filipino worker (OFW) of the Year Award (MOFYA).

Nominees for the MOFYA are families with either a land-based or sea-based OFW who can meet the following criteria: four (4) years overseas employment, must continue to maintain a family in the Philippines, supports the education of a child/ family member/s; known as a solid and stable family in the community; and financial stability.

According to the MOFYA selection criteria, nominees are expected to have a "wholesome" family (50%), involved in the community (20%), and successful in managing their family finances (20%) and the education of its members (10).

The candidates must be endorsed or nominated by any national government agency, non-government organization and private institutions.
