More than 200 students from eight target schools in the industrial zone area of Tinh Gia District of Thanh Hoa Province participated this month in a “Photovoice” photo contest to demonstrate their road safety awareness. Students were tasked with identifying and photographing examples of smart or risky road user behavior in their local communities.
At the exhibition, 39 photos were displayed and the two most outstanding from each school were presented on stage by the students themselves. The attendees and judging delegation from Nghi Son Refinery and Petrochemical Complex and the Tinh Gia Bureau of Education and Training were impressed by the confidence and thoughtfulness of the young students in presenting their observations of the current road environments in their hometown and their recommendations for improving them.
The photo displays were transported back to their respective schools after the event to serve as reminders for students and parents of the importance of road safety and their accomplishments in ensuring their local communities keep thriving.
