The only Vietnamese representative teams of Trang An and Hoang Thanh Thang Long, both from Hoa Binh University, were awarded the third and consolation prizes, respectively.
They were able to surpass the other 576 entrants in Asia to finish among the Top 20 alongside representatives from the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Macau (China), Tajikistan, and Vietnam.
Each team put on a 10-minute presentation detailing solutions aimed at preserving cultural heritage and developing tourism in the Asian region.
The contest was first launched by UNESCO from late 2022, with the final round taking place in Guangzhou, China, from April 22 to April 26.
The event is part of the Asian cultural heritage youth forum which was first held back in 1997. The objective is to involve young people in world heritage preservation efforts and promotion through a series of discussions and creative workshops.
