During the MOMA closing workshop at Quy Nhon University, in the afternoon of 15 September 2022, the Grand Ceremony of the V-CGC in the 2019-2022 period was held at Quy Nhon University. All participants attending the V-CGCs and winning the prizes in the past three years were invited. The event was to acknowledge high school teachers and students around Vietnam who have put a lot of time and efforts into this competition via three editions organized by the MOMA project. The students achieving prizes in the CGC 2021-2022 were awarded certificates and trophies by the organizers. The teachers and schools were also acknowledged with the trophies of excellent schools. Some groups of students from remote areas such as Kon Tum (the Central Highlands of Vietnam) were supported to participate in the event at Quy Nhon University. The ceremony further created the network between universities and the high schools, as well as induced a great atmosphere and lots of inspiration for young students.
