Thirteen students of northern Bac Giang province who obtained outstanding achievements in study and university entrance exams in 2014 have been granted awards by the locality’s Hoang Hoa Tham fund of the provincial Youth Union.

Initiated by the union’s Fund for Supporting and Developing Young Talents, the fund aims to honour union members and young local residents who achieve excellent academic, professional and research results.

So far, the fund has granted awards to 400 local pupils and students, supporting them in pursuing their dreams.

During the award ceremony on November 3, the provincial Youth Union also held a seminar on hero Ly Tu Trong, the example he set for today’s youth, and new youth development models.

Ly Tu Trong, the first communist adolescent in the Vietnamese revolution, was arrested by the French army in February 1931 and executed in November at the tender age of 17.-VNA
