This contest carried out by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism is organized more broadly than in 2019. Students from grades 1 to 12 and students from universities, institutions and other forms of education can participate in the event.

Speaking at the ceremony, Ms. Vu Duong Thuy Nga, Director of the Library Department said that reading and fondness of reading are traditional of Vietnamese people. Ms. Nga wants students to actively participate in the contest, to look back on how books have worked for themselves and how books change people's lives.

She also expressed her pleasure that Ta Quang Buu Library has tried its best in developing reading culture during social distancing. The library has many creative activities, serving online so students can access books. At the same time, she was grateful when Prof. Dr. Dinh Van Phong, Vice Rector of Hanoi University of Science and Technology, called on students in the process of learning and research to be constantly interested in reading culture. These actions have silently nurtured the reading culture for students, contributing to improving the people's intellectual standards and building a lifelong learning society in Vietnam, added Ms. Nga.

While Prof. Dr. Dinh Van Phong emphasized that in addition to providing information and knowledge, books also create beauty of children’s soul and personality. Therefore, maintaining reading and language culture is very important for society. He expressed his hope that students from the University will enthusiastically respond and participate in the competition to develop reading culture.

It is known that as soon as information about the contest had been updated, many students from the university sent entries to Ta Quang Buu library. At the launching ceremony, five students who submitted the earliest entries were honored by the Organizing Committee./.
