Sarah Nalule, the head of marketing, Monitor Publications Limited says the campaign has been running to commemorate the Newspaper’s 25 year milestone.

The top 25 were selected through voting on social media, vetting as well as radio.

The winners have walked away with different prizes including two nights at a luxurious lodge, pampering at a spa, a movie experience for the family, MIFI’s, branded monitor mugs, caps, among other gifts.
