The 44th Universal Postal Union (UPU) International Letter Writing Contest was launched in the northern port city Hai Phong on October 9 under the theme “Tell us about the world you want to grow up in”.
The annual international competition aims to improve children’s writing skills, increasing their awareness of the role of postal services and tightening international friendships.
In Vietnam, the competition usually receives more than one million entries from students aged 10-15 each year.
The original version and English or French translation of the best letter at the national level will be submitted to the global contest.
In the 43rd competition, seventh grader Pham Phuong Thao from Hai Phong’s Chu Van An Secondary School won the consolation prize.
Under the theme “Write a letter about how music can touch lives”, Thao wrote a story about a violin whose owner became more optimistic in life when making music.
On this occasion, 30 scholarships were presented to outstanding students in the city who live in difficult circumstances.
