Youth’s paintings celebrate Cuba’s National Day

The event was one of the city’s many activities to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Guevara’s death (October 9th, 1967-2017).

The painting competition, which began in November last year, was organised by the HCM City Union of Friendship Organisation and the HCM City’s Cuba-Vietnam Friendship Association in collaboration with the HCM City Youth Cultural House and the HCM City University of Fine Arts.

Winners are students at primary school, junior high school and universities. They won three first prizes, six second prizes, six third prizes and 19 consolation prizes.

The president of HCM City’s Cuba-Vietnam Friendship Association, Trương Thị Hien, said the painting competition paid tribute to the guerilla hero and demonstrated the affection of the Vietnamese for the Cuban revolutionary leader.

Relations between Vietnam and Cuba were fostered by the late president Ho Chi Minh and Fidel Castro.

The artworks are expected to be displayed later at the city’s Youth Cultural House, but the date has not been set./.
