Co-hosted by the Vietnam - Singapore Friendship Association under the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organizations (VUFO) and the Singaporean Embassy in Vietnam, this was an opening event for a series of activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the diplomatic relations, and 10 years of the strategic partnership between the two countries.

The contest was initiated by the Vietnamese Students' Association in Singapore and the Singapore Global Network (SGN) in October last year for Vietnamese students studying from the high school to doctoral (PhD) levels in Singapore.

The first prize went to Le Thanh Hong, a student at Singapore Polytechnic.
