3. Along with this Search is the implementation of the Bida Sa Pag-iimpok at Pangkabuhayan (BSP) Award, an award for sustained savings and entrepreneurial program either by a teacher/pupil/class or by a school implementing the program. The BSP Award is open to those who have guided and implemented sustained savings and entrepreneurial programs for at least two years.

4. As part of the criteria for both Awards (GURO ng PAG-ASA and the BSP), nominees are enjoined to initiate/conduct and encourage participation of their class/school in savings activities such as breaking or opening of coin banks and depositing the amount in a bank or any financial institution that provides ample protection to their deposits such as deposit insurance. The schools are encouraged to invite representatives from DepEd, BSP, and Banking Institutions to witness said savings/deposit activities during the National Savings Consciousness Week and other related special events (i.e. school foundation, Global Money Week, among other events).

5. All nominations to the GURO ng PAG-ASA and the BSP Award should be submitted to the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas c/o The Corporate Affairs Office, Room 412 5-Storey Building, BSP Complex, Manila 1004, or to the Regional Director/Branch Head of any of the regional offices or branches of the BSP, from November 27 to December 15, 2017.
