Thousands of student athletes from elementary and secondary schools in the 18 regions of the country will converge in San Jose de Buenavista City from April 23 to 29 for the 60th edition of the Palaro. The biggest inter-school competition organized by DepEd is expected to gather more than 12,000 participants.

In Antique, the Palaro will introduce new experiences to the participants, according to Umali.

- Former demonstration sports like wushu, wrestling, futsal, and billiards will be turned into regular sports to be included in the tally that determines the overall champion for Palaro.

- Aero gymnastics and dance sports have been put under the demonstration sports category.

For the first time since 1948, DepEd will give the "Palarong Pambansa Parangal," an award for a Palaro alumnus or alumna who can inspire young atheletes to excel in the field of sports.

Based on Republic Act No. 10588 or the Palarong Pambansa Act of 2013, the elementary level would have to compete in 15 games and the secondary level 17 games and 4 former demonstration sports.
