Three judges are assigned in each of the five categories: Outstanding Literacy Program and Outstanding Local Government Units – Independent Component and Component City, Highly Urbanized City, Municipal Level Class A, and Municipal Level Class B.

The initial part of the selection process is the review of the documents  submitted by each  lgu, from which the top five nominees shall be chosen.
