The winners will each receive a trophy and a cash prize of P50,000 credited to BPInoy savings account.

More than just quality and efficient remittance services, BPI also commits itself to the empowerment of Overseas Filipinos by recognizing the values of excellence that they’ve imparted to their children.

“Children of overseas Filipinos have become more aware of the sacrifices that their parents have endured just to support their families. “We’ve extended the opportunity for more applicants to join because we understand their eagerness in making their parents proud,” said Roy Emil Yu, BPI senior vice president.

Applicants who are qualified to join based on the search’s guidelines must submit an essay, either in English or Filipino, answering the topic: “Overseas migration has its gains and pains. As the daughter/son of an OFW, how can you help optimize the economic gains of your parent’s employment overseas and minimize the social risks that your family faces due to distance and years of separation?”

The essay must be typewritten, double-spaced, and must contain at least 1,000 words but not more than 1,200 words.
