All schools in northern Vinh Phuc province have been decorated with big-sized maps of the two archipelagos of Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) as part of activities of the Youth Month 2013 (March).

This is the idea of the provincial Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union committee, aiming to educate youth union members, young people and children about the national sea and island sovereignty.

More than 400 canvas maps, measuring 5x 6.5m, are hung near the gates of all primary, high and vocational schools in the province.-VNA
