Baguio City-  A bonus amounting to nearly  900,000.00  from the winning prizes of Batang Pinoy (BP) national finals in September last year was released for the 295 athletes to receive.

The city government released the cash prizes to the athletes after a few months from winning the national competition.

"More than 90 percent of the total athletes have already received their bonus.....They got 30 percent of the amount of the incentive," said Paul Rillota, one of the facilitators from the Baguio government's city sports office.

Athletes who won the gold, silver and bronze medal received  a cash  amounting to ₱3,000.00, ₱2,000.00 and ₱1,000.00  respectively.

The incentives distributed to the athletes came from the ₱3,000,000.00 cash price received by the city for winning the overall crown from the Philippine Sports Commission.

Last year,  among the 298 young athletes who won the gold medal received ₱10,000.00, silver medal received ₱6,000.00 and bronze medal received ₱4,000.00. 

Majority of the athletes who are 15 years old and below have already started receiving their cash prizes in May.

In 2016, the city government passed the athletes incentive ordinance stating the amount athletes can receive in certain levels of sports competitions.

Likewise, athletes who won the Palarong Pambansa 2019 received a total of ₱395,000.00.
