THE SAMPAGUITA AWARD
Like the lovely white Sampaguita, our national flower of purity of intent
Symbol of pristine love of country and our glorious past,
Like the mystical and enchanting fragrance of the Sampaguita flower,
Emanating from our profound Sense of Identity, hidden in the ashes of colonial past,
A strong boisterous Spirit arises to declare that WE ARE FILIPINOS,
Ready, Willing, and Able to stand with our kindred in America and all Nations.
