Youth Union Secretary Nguyen Ngoc Luong said the app will help enhance communication between the union and its members, and reflect their thoughts accurately.
He added that young people can also access information about learning, jobs, various services as well as taking part in contests held by the Youth Union.

After the preliminary round, contestants with the highest scores will qualify to enter the semi-final round where they will compete in writing and multiple-choice tests.

The cash prizes for the contest are VND80 million (nearly US$3,500).
