This award is given to the winner of the cultural (pinal) contest. Participating PSA sections are competing in drama, choir, and dance.
The winner of the soccer tournament is awarded Kuppu Gaye Amadou Malick. Pulaar Speaking Association participating teams come from different states in the US to compete for this highest trophy of the tournament.

Overview of Awards

Mamadou Samba Diop AKA Murtodo dedicated his life to the advancement of Pulaar. His commitment won him the nickname “Baaba Lenol”, literally meaning the Father of the Fulani ethnic group. The award is created to celebrate his contribution to developing Pulaar and raising awareness about its importance.
Baaba Maal is a living legend. This African icon has represented the Fulani culture and the Pulaar language around the world. Pulaar Speaking created this award in recognition of his valuable contribution. Lefol Baaba Maal is awarded every other year during the festival Pottital Ful6e USA.
Like his mentee Mamadou Samba Diop, Gaye Amadou Malick worked behind the scene for the transcription of Pulaar. He also trained late Pr. Saidou Kane to bring him to the cause
