10 of Tampines’ Grassroots leaders were recently given recognition in appreciation of their valuable contribution to the community.

The Singapore National Day Awards are a means of recognising various forms of merit and service to Singapore. Recipients are shortlisted based on a set of stringent criteria and an elaborate system of assessment, before being sent to the Cabinet for clearance and to the President for final approval. For PBM and BBM, grassroots leaders must satisfy the minimum time in service before they are deemed to be eligible to be nominated.

As the award is one of highest level of recognitions by the state, PBM and BBMs are awarded to grassroots leaders who have made significant contributions to the society in the areas of community engagements.
