The organising board said that all entries showed the theme of the contest and carried significant messages which demonstrate children's belief in the country and their gratitude for frontliners of the fight against the pandemic.
Through the event, VND210 million (US$9,230) was mobilised and donated to the national COVID-19 vaccine fund.
