While cash prize and sports voucher with certificates are offered to the awardees of the award, Certificates of Merit are presented to nominated athletes who are not selected for the awards but have achieved point-3 results according to the Elite Vote Scoring Table of the specific sport to as a token of appreciation to their efforts.
