Kota Kinabalu: Inanam’s Hyellene Danius was crowned Sabah’s 64th Unduk Ngadau at the Hongkod Koisaan in Penampang on Friday.

The 27-year-old teacher at SJK (C) Tsi Sin in Tenom is also the first National Unduk Ngadau Kaamatan queen following the elevation of the pageant from its state-level status this year.

She won prizes worth RM100,000, including RM12,000 cash, a trophy and crown, among others.

She was crowned by last year’s State Unduk Ngadau Kaamatan queen, Carol Abbey Gail Grimaldi, from Papar.

Elldiwirna Saimen from Kiulu and Keningau’s Monicka Majin were named first and second runners-up, receiving RM10,000 and RM8,000 cash, respectively.

Johor’s Romandawi Gapari finished fourth, Tenom’s Liana Melve Grace Lias fifth, Tongod’s Elviana Gunong sixth and Kemabong’s Richella Kan Siang seventh.

The top seven winners also received a year’s rice supply from Sazarice.

The Unduk Ngadau is among the highlights of the month-long Kaamatan (harvest) Festival.­
