The Philippine Sports Commission Women in Sports presents the Gintong Gawad Award 2021 as a national search for ground-breaking, inspiring, notable, timeless, outstanding contributions to grassroots women in sports.
“We are happy to finally recognize and pay tribute to remarkable achievements in sports of women and of outstanding initiatives for women in the communities throughout the country,” said PSC Chairman William Ramirez.
“Through the years, we have witnessed the continuing recognition of excellent performances in elite sports, but none so far yet for those in the grassroots, particularly women,” added Ramirez.
The Republic Act 10699 (National Athletes and Coaches Benefits and Incentives Act), according to Ramirez, provides benefits and incentives for national athletes and those winning in international sports competitions.
Gintong Gawad is a milestone initiative that will inspire community-based athletes, coaches, sports leaders, benefactors, sports scientists, and innovators to continue helping in the development of women in sports.
