Silak recognizes leadership and academic excellence to inspire the Romblomanon youth, the hope of the province, to excel and to help mould them to be productive and responsive community leaders.



The Silak Medal for Academic Excellence is awarded to Romblomanon high school Valedictorians and Salutatorians, or in the case of a school that does not give such distinctions, its top two graduates. 

The Silak Medal for Leadership Excellence is awarded to the Romblomanon high school graduate with the most outstanding leadership record in his high school years in a particular school. It will be based on the achievements of the student as a leader of various student, youth, religious, governmental and/or non-governmental organizations. Selection is left to the school administration.



Silak provides support and encouragement to the awardees to continue the quest for academic excellence and their involvement in various organizations through leadership training seminars, continuous monitoring and further recognitions. 



The Silak Medals for Leadership and Academic Excellence are sponsored by Joseph F. Fadri and Lyndon F. Fadri through Silak it Bantoanon, Inc., a non-profit and non-governmental organization.
