The ten best photos were selected for prizes, including one First Prize, two Second prizes, three Third prizes, and four Consolation prizes. The awarding ceremony was organised in June 8, 2017 at “Climate change and young people’s responsibility” forum in Ha Tinh city.

Tran Dinh Quang, representative of the co-ordination committee, said that the forum is aimed to facilitate the opportunity for students to express their ideas and proposals about climate change, and their awareness about their role in responding to climate change via their speeches, representations and art performances.
Also at the forum, the students and experts discussed the causes behind climate change, their activities to contribute to respond to climate change, such as collecting rubbish, planting trees, rubbish classification, saving water, and limitation in using nylon bags when shopping, or sharing bikes or using electricity bikes in order to save energy.
In addition, the final-year students also discussed activities to introduce climate change response into their lessons in the class, such as designing greenhouses when making graduation work, making scientific studies about environmental protection, and teaching kids how to turn rubbish into toys.
