The annual competition took place in the town square on Sunday 6th July as part of the St Peter's Fair Family Fete afternoon. Five children from the local area took part by reading a proclamation that congratulated the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their daughter Charlotte, and promised the loyalty of the citizens of Holsworthy in upholding the Queen’s laws.

The competition was very close but the eventual winner was nine year old Blake Chapland from St. Margaret’s Junior School in Northam. The prize and trophy were presented by new Holsworthy & District Lions President Brian Withall. Also pictured are Emma Rovenska (age 6), Samuel Hutchings (age 9), Archie Walters (age 9), Indigo Haynes (age 11), Holsworthy Town Crier Roger Dunstan and the Portreeve, Phil Cole.
