About 25  primary schools participated in the competition where the best 10 were selected and later reduced to five and three respectively.

Fagge Model Primary School emerged the overall winner of the competition through the brilliant performance of their pupil Yusuf Ismail. Hausawa Model Primary School came second and  Race Course Model Primary School came third.  Each was given a Desktop computer and undisclosed amount of money.

“We are promoting the culture and other good virtues of societal development,” Ranjan said.
