Outstanding ethnic children honored

A national ceremony was held in Hanoi on Tuesday to honor 200 outstanding ethnic children who have gained good study results despite difficult circumstances.

The third national ethnic children festival was a day of solidarity, offering an opportunity to reward ethnic youngsters for their outstanding performance in pioneering activities.

The event enabled them to meet, learn from each other, uphold solidarity, and attract the attention of agencies and social organizations.

Truong Thi Mai, head the Party Central Committee's Commission for Mass Mobilisation, said the Party and government always attach importance to the protection and education of children and have promulgated many policies to boost their development.

On the threshold of a new academic year, I would like to convey my best wishes to the children and the chiefs of the Ho Chi Minh Young Pioneer Organization. I hope you will continue to follow the example of child heroes who sacrificed their lives for the nation's glorious history, to uphold the traditional fondness for learning, and to actively participate in activities of the Ho Chi Minh Young Pioneer Organization. The nation and your families rest all their faith and expectations on you, Vietnam's future masters, who will bring fame to the nation, said Ms. Mai.

At the ceremony organized by the Ho Chi Minh Young Pioneer Organization, 54 outstanding ethnic children were given Vu A Dinh scholarships, which honor individuals and organisations who have made outstanding contributions to the development of Vietnam's ethnic communities.
