Rules and regulations

  • The submitted product/project must be an original work with full credit given to the creator(s), who, in this case, are the competition’s participating student(s). Any form of copyright infringement and plagiarism will not be tolerated. If caught infringing on copyright or plagiarising, the participating student(s) will be immediately disqualified from the competition. 

  • The submitted product/project must be deemed appropriate for the age group of participating student(s) and must not go against the culture as well as the moral values of Vietnamese society. That means: no excessive use of coarse languages; no encouragement of extreme thoughts and ideas; no incitement of violence and social discrimination; no sensitive contents, such as sex and nudity; no input of political opinions. 

  • The competition strictly prohibits cheating (buying interaction, using like-hacking tools…) in any form.   

  • Participating students are allowed and encouraged to seek for mentors who are high school teachers/ seniors with relevant experience to consult and accompany you throughout the competition. However, product/project with professional intervention from outsiders will receive little to no appraisal from the judges.

  • The decisions of the judges are final.
