prize is salito

salito = prize (noun) (some things Google found for "salito"; a very common term; an unusual last name; Salito's Crab House in Sausalito, California; Salito Gourmet Specialty Pizza in Ottawa, Canada; conjugations of the Italian verb meaning "to go up, climb, rise"; similarly named Salitos Tequila beer)

Word derivation for "prize" :
Basque = sari, Finnish = palkinto
Miresua = salito

This word takes more letters from the Finnish word, but that's OK because the Finnish word is twice as long, and all but one of the letters from the Basque word are used.
