Tao-ey (Gibraltar Barangay), PB Jesusa A. Vizcaya (Loakan Proper Barangay), and PB Horacio P. Willy (Pinsao Proper).

He likewise expressed that Liga ng mga Barangay – Baguio Chapter is thankful for the said awards as the efforts of the punong barangays are recognized.
Furthermore, he acknowledged the Rotary Club of Metro Baguio for coming up with this annual event which truly serves as a motivation for the punong barangays to work harder for their respective barangays.
