On May 12, Tuyen Quang Provincial Party Committee’s Commission of Communications and Education held an award ceremony to honour the winners of a contest about "Uncle Ho and Tuyen Quang – the national resistance capital during past resistance wars".

The online contest was held from March 1 to April 29 with four rounds, attracting nearly 110,00 contestants consisting of local students, civil servants, soldiers and workers to learn about the landmarks and historical events which took place in the province and were associated with the activities of President Ho Chi Minh.

The organisers awarded 44 prizes, including four first, eight second, 12 third and 20 consolation prizes.

The contest aims to further promote patriotic emulation movements and the campaign regarding learning and following President Ho Chi Minh's ideology, morality and style in Tuyen Quang.

* An exhibition is to take place from May 15 to the end of this July at the Vietnam Military History Museum, No. 28A, Dien Bien Phu Street, Hanoi, showcasing typical images and documents reflecting President Ho Chi Minh's leadership, direction and special affection for the Vietnam People's Army.

Themed "Always having Uncle Ho in our hearts," the event also reflects the attention of the Party, State and military leaders in promoting the learning and following of President Ho Chi Minh's ideology, morality and style, thereby honouring and praising the late leader’s great contribution to the nation, as well as the infinite respect and gratitude of the Vietnamese people for him.

The activity is part of a political campaign entitled "Proud of Uncle Ho's generation", and features various activities to educate Youth Union members, youngsters and children in Hanoi about President Ho Chi Minh City’s life and revolutionary career.
