Challa was closely followed by Nangiro Vanessa, 21, Moroto district and Napeyok Ursula Joan, 20, in as the first and second runners up respectively.
The night was also punctuated with a tribute to fallen former Minister for Tourism and wildlife antiquities Maria Mutagamba who succumbed to digestive complications.
