A university in Ho Chi Minh City is launching a competition challenging high school students across Vietnam to help solve the national traffic problem.
The contest, initiated by the International Training and Education Center (ITEC) under the University of Sciences, asks applicants to write essays in English that analyze the current traffic situation and propose innovative solutions.
A panel of five judges, including foreign professors from the New Zealand-based AUT University, Keuka College in the US and the University of East London (UK), will read and deliberate over the submissions, the ITEC said.
Students who finish in the top three will be awarded an iPad2 and granted scholarships worth VND240 million each if they are accepted into the university's international business administration program for the 2012-2013 academic year.
High schoolers seeking to participate should send their submissions to the organizer by post or by email before April 30. Results are expected to be announced on June 30.
