After 3 months of launch, more than 10,000 students in Hanoi took part in the writing contest to look for ambassadors of reading culture, part of the project “Let’s Read” by the Vietnam Intellectual Cooperation Centre (VICC), aiming to promote reading culture in Vietnam.

9-grader Nguyen Van Thuy Linh from Ngo Si Lien Secondary School was conferred the title “Hanoi’s Typical Ambassador of Reading Culture 2016”.

“I have many ideas and want to share with others. For example, I want to set up several book stalls in walking streets around the Sword Lake so that everyone can read and discuss with each other. Or I think there should be a book corner for children in each residential area. Or when students learn history, geography, and science, they should take along the books that they find interesting to have more knowledge apart from what they learn in textbooks,” said Linh.

The contest will continue to be held next year and planned to expand nationwide.
