Nine citizens received awards as Integrity icons 2018 who were short-listed from over 500 nominations made from the public. The Integrity Awards seeks to revitalize integrity, good character and other national values as a counter culture to corruption. The Integrity Awards will not only reshape norms that sustain corruption but also build a new culture that highlights integrity, selflessness and patriotism. Identifying and honoring citizens who have shown exemplary acts of integrity and leadership in the fight against corruption will serve as an incentive and motivation for citizens, particularly youths, and galvanize them to emulate the values celebrated in the Awardees.
