A contest titled “Teenagers with wildlife protection” was launched in Hanoi on April 10 as part of activities marking International Day for Biological Diversity (May 22).

The contest aims to encourage young people to engage in wildlife conservation activities through creative approaches in combination with entertainment forms.

All youth union members, students and teenagers nationwide are entitled to take part in the competition, which focuses on raising awareness of the values of wildlife and the importance of wildlife and biodiversity protection.

Contestants are also encouraged to represent their viewpoints on wildlife preservation, call on the public to say no to products derived from wild animals, as well as build slogans, messages and actions on wildlife protection.

They can send their entries - songs, music performances, dances and dramas - recorded on CD or VCD, to the National Volunteer Centre at 64 Ba Trieu Street, Hanoi from April 10 to May 10.

An award ceremony for the winners is scheduled for May 22 in Hanoi.-VNA
