The Outstanding Filipino (TOFIL) Award is a project of Junior Chamber International (JCI) Senate Philippines and the Insular Life Assurance Co., Limited.

TOFIL seeks to give national recognition to Filipinos whose selfless dedication to their profession or vocation has resulted in significant contributions to the welfare of their countrymen and our country at large, as well as to the advancement of their respective fields of endeavor.
