The competition, launched a year ago with the theme of “The Power of Words”, has attracted the attention and participation of Francophone students nationwide, as well as some young foreigners who are living and working in Thailand.

The organizing panel selected 20 outstanding entries from 89 entries for the final round. Accordingly, Dao Phuong Loan won the first prize with her article "Vietnamese youth with negative words on Facebook". Besides, the organizers also presented one second, one third, and many other prizes for the winners.

With the support from OIF, Le Courrier du Vietnam (CVN) edited 20 finalists for a special publication in format of pocketbook. The publication will present to the Francophone Embassies, international organizations, domestic and foreign universities, and all participants.
