NDO – On the evening of December 25, the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) held a ceremony in Hanoi to honour exemplary students in studying and following President Ho Chi Minh’s thought, morality and lifestyle.

The event was attended by Politburo member and Permanent Member of the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat Tran Quoc Vuong, Politburo member and Head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Communication and Education Vo Van Thuong, and Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam.

In his remarks, MOET Minister Phung Xuan Nha hailed the 130 honoured students as beautiful flowers with exceptional academic results; dynamism and enthusiasm in activities of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and the Ho Chi Minh Young Pioneer Organisation; initiatives and creativity in study and scientific research; and noble humanitarian gestures, contributing to spreading the spirit of studying and following Uncle Ho’s examples among younger generations.

At the ceremony, the organising committee presented awards to outstanding individuals and collectives of the 2020 contest, titled “Youth study and follow the Ho Chi Minh thought, morality and lifestyle”.

Three first prizes went to Le Minh Tue, a student at Hong Bang Secondary School (Hong Bang District, Hai Phong City); Nguyen Nhat Huy, a student at the University of Sciences – Hue University (Thua Thien Hue Province); and Hoang Thi Thu, a female teacher at Nguyen Duc Canh Secondary School (Dong Trieu Town, Quang Ninh Province).

In addition, the organisers awarded nine second prizes, 18 third prizes and 60 fourth prizes. The collective prizes were presented to 10 Provincial Departments of Education and Training, 20 training institutions and 10 high schools with the largest number of contestants.

This is the sixth year that the contest has been jointly held by the MOET, the Party Central Committee’s Communication and Education Commission, and the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee. It aims to enable youth union members, young people and students both at home and abroad to learn more about President Ho Chi Minh and the values of his Testament, as well as the country’s glorious history and sea and island sovereignty, thereby contributing to education on morality and lifestyle and fostering revolutionary ideals among Vietnam’s younger generations.
