was a nail-biting two hours for the guests as well as 
the 13 contestants.

As its tagline suggests, Siyatha Miss World Sri Lanka is not only about beauty but it’s also about a purpose. Hence, all contestants have to do a community service project which would make an impact on society. The 13 contestants travelled around Sri Lanka and participated in various mini pageants while also having their own time. The overall choreography was done by veteran designer Senaka De Silva while personality development and corporate etiquette trainer Kumar De Silva groomed their communication skills and etiquette. 
Before coming to the much-anticipated hour of the pageant, the winners of the 
mini-pageants were announced as follows :
