The Sunday Mail (Zimbabwe) - - SHOWBIZ - An­drew Moyo

THE Sun­day Mail Jet Baby of the Year 2018 com­pe­ti­tion reached its cli­max last week­end with lucky ba­bies re­ceiv­ing their prizes at a glit­ter­ing cer­e­mony held at Rain­bow Tow­ers Ho­tel in Harare.

Those who came first in the var­i­ous cat­e­gories walked away with $300 cash prizes and cer­tifi­cates cour­tesy of The Sun­day Mail, as well as $300 worth of shop­ping vouch­ers from Jet Stores.

Sec­ond placed win­ners re­ceived $200 cash prizes, cer­tifi­cates and $200 worth of shop­ping vouch­ers, also cour­tesy of The Sun­day Mail and Jet Stores re­spec­tively.

This time around, there was also the breast­feed­ing and spon­sors’ choice cat­e­gories, where win­ners re­ceived $100 cash prizes.

In run­ning the com­pe­ti­tion, Jet Stores has been The Sun­day Mail’s tra­di­tional part­ner for the past few years. This time around, the Min­istry of Health and Child Care also came on board, thereby added flair to this no­ble ini­tia­tive. In the 0-12 months girls cat­e­gory, Makanaka Chipombo walked away with the first prize while Maita Khloe Tsikira came sec­ond.

Anenyasha Alvern Mut­ing­wende and Ku­nashe Quin­ton Manyero won first and sec­ond prizes re­spec­tively in the boys cat­e­gory for this age group.

Ti­nayeishe Chir­ima clinched first place in the 13-24 months girls cat­e­gory while An­gel-Rose Ru­varashe Chi­takunye came sec­ond.

The vic­to­ri­ous boys in this age group were Quin­ton Tadisa Ng­werume on first place and Kyle Madyike who came sec­ond.

Ta­tiana Ru­tendo Mut­seura won in the breast­feed­ing cat­e­gory while Melusi Jay­den Mahla and Sky­lar Man­jera won in the spon­sors’ choice cat­e­gory.

The Sun­day Mail, be­ing the lead­ing fam­ily news­pa­per in the coun­try, has for many years col­lab­o­rated with var­i­ous part­ners to pro­mote fam­ily val­ues through ini­tia­tives such as its baby and bridal com­pe­ti­tions.

Over the years, the num­ber of en­tries into the com­pe­ti­tions have been steadily in­creas­ing.
