The event, organized by the Union of Friendship Organizations of Hanoi in collaboration with the municipal Department of Culture and Sports and the Hanoi Cultural Center, drew the participation of more than 300 children from the capital and several countries such as the Republic of Korea, France, Russia, Belgium, the Philippines, Thailand and Venezuela, who are studying and living in Hanoi.

Children take part in the contest.

The contestants featured subjects they are interested in, such as peace, love for Hanoi, nature and environmental protection, and the fight against poverty.

A special prize went to Le Tran Thanh Van, while two first prizes were carried off by Nguyen Ha Phuong and Henning Jolene Mai (Belgian nationality). The organizing board also presented three second, five third and 10 consolidation prizes to the contestants.
