Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Thanh Hung said, “I hope in the future the UPU letter-writing contest will spread more widely to honor human values and demonstrate the role and social responsibility of students. To that end, agencies should work closely with the contest’s organizing board in providing better instructions to attract more school students to participate.”

100 entries were selected for the final round. There is one first prize, three second prizes, five third prizes, 30 consolation prizes, along with several other prizes honoring potential contestants and contestants with disabilities.
