A national jury selected the top TV personalities considered “credible, wholesome and worth emulating by the youth."

Anak TV has been recognizing kid-friendly TV programs since 1996 through its Makabata (pro-child) seal awards. For 2015, a total of 31 media personalities were declared family-friendly in a recognition ceremony held on February 23, 2016.

According to the foundation's Facebook account, Anak TV aims to "promote media literacy, particularly television literacy, and push the agenda for child-sensitive, family-friendly television in the Philippines."

Worth emulating by the youth

Four local celebrities were inducted into the "Makabata (Pro-child) Hall of Fame" because they consistently topped the surveys for the past 8 years. They are Ted Failon, Kim Atienza, Kim Chiu and Toni Gonzaga.

Toni posted on her Instagram that young viewers "have always been a great inspiration."
