In a directive published on the Government Gazette today, the National Awards Committee has opened nominations for the National Award of Honour. This year, the annual National Awards conferred to Maldivians who have made exemplary contributions in various fields will be awarded on National Day.
This year’s National Award will be presented to 33 categories. The categories were decided and amended after discussing with Government offices, independent institutions, companies, associations, and individuals.
Similar to previous years, Government offices, independent institutions, companies, associations, and individuals can propose nominees for the Awards through appropriate government agencies, and by submitting the designated nomination forms.
The deadline for submitting the completed nominations forms is 31st July 2019 Wednesday 02:00 pm. Completed nominations forms are to be submitted to the President’s Office, addressed to the National Awards Committee. Forms are available from the President’s Office during official work hours and can be downloaded via www.presidencymaldives.gov.mv.
The National Awards Committee will conduct informational programs regarding the National Awards for the Maldivian press.
