BAGUIO CITY -- Fifty-four-year-old barangay health worker Remedios Galingao of Pasil town in Kalinga emerged as the winner of this year’s search for the Most Outstanding Pantawid Pamilya Parent Leader award of the Department of Social Welfare and Development Cordillera.
The search, being held for the first time, aims to recognize outstanding Pantawid Pamilya Parent Leaders who volunteer and foster as models of excellence in their households, groups, and communities. They are co-beneficiaries of the government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps).
 DSWD-CAR officer in charge Janet Armas said the parent leaders contribute to the success of the 4Ps program in the Cordillera.
 Prior to the regional search, the DSWD conducted provincial searches.
 Seven emerged as regional contenders that included Remedios Galingao who was later on declared as regional winner.
 Galingao, during the regional awarding said she was happy for winning the contest, adding she will continue to become a role model not only to her co-parent leaders but most specially to the beneficiaries of the 4Ps and to religiously follow and abide by the policy of the program.
 Galingao became a beneficiary of the government’s 4Ps in 2009 and since then she became an active member-beneficiary until she was chosen as the parent leader in 2014 in their barangay.
Galingao received a championship trophy, certificate and cash prize for emerging as the top winner. Next to Galingao was Shirley Hernia-Guab of Baguio City (1st runner up), Rodelia Mateo of Apayao (2nd runner up) and Juiliana Bambilla of Abra (3rd runner up). All three received a trophy and cash prize.
 The other nominees for the regional search were Esther Bantasan of Benguet, Betty Manzano of Ifugao, and Marina Pespes of Mountain Province.
 Bantasan, Manzano and Pespes received a certificate and P2,000 each as consolation prize for qualifying in the regional level. -- PNA
