The contest aims to stimulate interest and passion for reading among young people, teenagers and children across the country, thereby encouraging and promoting the reading movement, forming reading habits and skills for the young generation - an important factor contributing to the development of reading culture in schools and communities.

Contestants can choose one of three topics, focusing on the content: Sharing a favorite book or a book that changed your perception or life; composing a work (story or poem) to encourage people to read; and continuing writing for a story or book you've read.

The organizers encourage contestants to illustrate, make videos or use bilingual Vietnamese - English to make their entries more convincing and vivid.

The contest will be held two rounds. The preliminary round will take place in provinces, cities, universities and academies from February to the end of July 15th. The outstanding entries from the preliminary round will be selected for the national round in early September./.
