At the announcement of the results, the organizing committee of the competition took into consideration, Physical Beauty, Dress codes of the contestants and Exposure of the children academically as a major requirement where Little Welydia, having excellently performed, emerged as winner of the competition.
Speaking shortly after the results were announced, the Principal of Royal Foundation Day-Care and Primary School in Clara Town, Mrs. Theresa Gonleh, admonished the students to keep focused and continue the good work as according to them, the future has the best.
