The contest was launched in September by the Military Youth Board under a plan approved by the Ministry of National Defense on July 30, 2018 on further promoting law education and dissemination to raise troops’ legal awareness.

The contest received 420,000 entries from troops and youths of their twinned units.

Many entries were creatively and well prepared, reflecting the realities of units as well as troops’ responsibility for education and dissemination of laws.

Speaking at the event, Lieutenant General Le Hien Van congratulated the awarded individuals and groups and lauded the effective coordination between the Military Youth Board and relevant agencies in organizing the contest. He added that the contest has helped raise troops’ awareness of the significance of the Vietnam Law Day (November 9) and respect for laws, military disciplines and regulations, contributing to the building of a comprehensively strong unit and a revolutionary, regular, elite and gradually-modernized military. 

The Deputy Director of the General Department of Politics asked military agencies and units to promote legal education and dissemination to help their troops thoroughly embrace Vietnamese laws, making contribution to building a strong military and embellishing the image of Uncle Ho’s soldiers in the new period.

He also urged military units to popularize the outcomes of the contest and affirmed that young troops are a vanguard force in following laws and military disciplines in order to build a politically strong military with highly self-disciplined troops.
