It is known that this is the first time this contest has been held. After 2 months of  having launched the contest, it attracted 30 teams from universities in the city to register.
After the preliminary qualifier had finished, the 10 best teams entered into the contest final. Here, the teams competed through three rounds: I know about the world, I integrate with the world and I change the world. In the first round, the teams had to answer 10 multiple-choice questions, then 5 teams going on to round 2 would answer 5 open – ended questions. 3 teams passing the second round would enter the final one to draw the presentation content. After only 3 rounds, a series of knowledge about global events and issues became the "problem" to challenge the teams' psychology as well as sharp thinking and response.
The teams demonstrated their knowledge of international events through the rounds
With the increasing difficulty in each round, the 3 teams reaching the final round to get to the the top in the contest were AXIS OF EVIL, ISG and TZAR BOMBA.
The presentation challenge in the final round was not only the fierce competition of the 3 teams but became a forum to help the young people representing their generation to voice their opinions about global issues. The 3 teams with 3 different colors and styles gave impressive presentations. TZAR BOMBA make a presentation about the national digital transformation for the young generation, meanwhile ISG’s presentation content was about the opinions and actions of young people towards the ASEAN Charter. The last team to make a presentation, AXIS OF EVIL surprised the whole hall with their logical thinking ability, linking the issue with the presentation on the International Day of Epidemic Preparedness proposed by Vietnam and the actions of the Vietnamese youth.
AXIS OF EVIL confidently answered the questions from the Jury
With careful preparation, confidence, calm demeanor, and the ability to master knowledge, AXIS OF EVIL got the top prize in the contest. Besides, the third prize belonged to ISG, and TZAR BOMBA won the second prize.
   AXIS OF EVIL won the first prize in the contest "I am a global citizen" in 2021.
The contest "I am a global citizen" ended in the joy and excitement of all participants. This is not only a useful playing-field to create opportunities for the exchange among students at universities in the city but also a basis for students to conquer, dominate knowledge and quickly integrate to become global citizens.
