“Climate change brings with it many negative impacts that seriously affect all countries. Protecting the environment and reducing emissions do not mean doing something big, but should stem from the daily activities of each person,” Thuy said.

The contest was co-organised by the Ho Chi Minh City Communist Youth Union (HCYU) Central Committee, in collaboration with the French Development Agency (AFD) and TikTok Vietnam from July 6 to August 16, registering a total of 1,671 entries from across the country. Of the contestants, there were many influential celebrities amongst the youth.

Throughout the six weeks of the contest, the organising board presented 12 weekly awards worth VND1 million each. The best one amongst these was then selected for the VND10 million first prize, in addition to two entries being given the second prize (VND5 million each) and three others in line for third prize (VND3 million each).

In addition, the contest also offered four consolation prizes, one award for the entry which received the highest number of votes, and one “Creative” award, all worth VND2 million each.
