The ceremony which was attended by Minister of Education and Training Phung Xuan Nha aims to mark the 36th anniversary of Vietnamese Teachers' Day (November 20).
Launched in March, the organization board received more than 700 submissions honoring typical teachers, creativity and innovation in teaching and learning and the renewal of educational sector.
The organizer awarded four “A”, eight “B”, 11 “C” and 20 consolation prizes.
The organization board also selected Dang Van Cuong, the principal of Son Ba Primary Boarding School in the central province of Quang Ngai and his tiniest student Dinh Van K’Re as typical characters in the award-wining work. Dinh Van K’Re is an ethnic boy who weighs only 3.9 kilograms (8.6 pounds) and is still a 1st grade at the age of 10. Principal Dang Van Cuong brought him to the school and took care of the boy like his own son.
