They enjoyed a bus ride from their communities to the venue of competition and interacted with the others who had assembled for the competition. 55  more girls participated in the mixed group.

All the participants received participation certificate and one of them, a group from the largely Muslim Gilbert Hill neighbourhood won the second prize.
