High schoolers from across the nation are expected to engage in a new and compelling educational competition to explore the beauty and diversity of Canada.

The Embassy of Canada in Hanoi and the Consulate General of Canada in Ho Chi Minh City on August 26 announced that the competition, titled “Explore Canada from A to Z”, will run from August 27 to November 30 as part of the activities to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Vietnam-Canada diplomatic ties.

Contestants will compete in three rounds, including online quiz in Vietnamese, English or French writing, and English or French speaking.

The first prize will receive a scholarship to study English or French, Canada’s two official languages, and Canadian culture for two weeks in Canada, including a cultural tour for the accompanying parent.

The second and third prize winners will be awarded a Blackberry Bold Touch 9900 and Blackberry Curve 9320 respectively. In addition, 12 consolidation prize winners will each receive a cool student kit.
