The contest drew the participation of nearly 100 students from the secondary schools of Thuong Tin Town, Van Dao, and Nguyen Trai A. Participants to the event have a chance to learn more about the State’s legal documents on national sovereignty over seas and islands, the Law on the Vietnam Coast Guard, the coast guard force’s missions, and the harmful effects of drugs and school violence, to name but a few.

Winners of the contest receive awards at the event.

Since 2013, the contest has been held successfully at 48 secondary schools in 18 provinces and cities nationwide with the participation of over 1,300 contestants, including teachers, students and their parents.

Within the framework of this year’s event, the organizing panel handed over gifts, worth VND 2 million each, to five heroic Vietnamese mothers; presented 40 bikes, 35 scholarships of VND 1 million each, and national flag T-shirts to needy students.

On this occasion, doctors of Military Hospital 103 provided health checkups and free medicines for 120 policy beneficiaries in Van Tao commune.

At the end of the contest, the organizing panel presented the first prize to eighth-grade student Pham Huong Giang from Nguyen Trai A Secondary School, and one second, one third, and six consolidation prizes to outstanding contestants.

The contest contributed to nurturing students’ love and responsibilities for national sovereignty over seas and islands.
