Speaking at the ceremony to welcome back and honor the winners of the IOAA 2023, Director of Hanoi's Department of Education and Training Tran The Cuong said that the students' achievements have reaffirmed the strength of the city’s education sector.

"I expect schools in the capital will focus on spearheading educational activities and win international awards that will make both Hanoi and Vietnam proud," the director stressed.

The IOAA is an annual international science competition for high school students to honor astronomy and astrophysics.

It is a joint initiative of five countries - Thailand, Indonesia, Iran, China, and Poland - to popularize astronomy among high school students and promote international friendship and cooperation among young astronomers, giving opportunities for students from different countries and regions to enhance exchanges.

The competition was first held in Thailand in November 2007. In last year's edition, the Hanoi delegation competed for students nationwide and won one silver medal, five bronze medals, and one consolation prize. The next edition will be held in Brazil in 2024.
