To participate in this year’s competition, junior school teachers and students can make a short presentation on traffic safety which could include an essay, a poem, a song, an art performance or pictures, to propagate awareness of traffic safety.
All teachers and students from junior schools in the above eight provinces are eligible for the annual competition. Selected outstanding presentations will be shown at other competitions for people to view.
This competition is part of a number of annual activities of Toyota Vietnam Fund titled ‘Toyota with Students for Traffic Safety’, implemented during academic year 2005-2006, in a bid to educate young students on the importance of traffic safety.
