The awarding ceremony was conducted on Friday, 22 March 2019 at Novotel Manila, Araneta Center, Quezon City.

The World Water Day Awards is an annual activity organized by the National Water Resources Board and Maynilad Water Services, Inc., to give recognition to "Water Champions" i.e., individuals, groups, or organizations who have made a difference in the area of water access and environmental sustainability.

The awarding served as a culmination activity for the celebration of World Water Day—an annual international event that aims to increase awareness on the importance of water and the need to conserve our water resources.

This year’s theme, “Leaving no one behind” adapts the central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that as sustainable development progresses, everyone must benefit.
