The World Scholar's Cup is deemed as “a celebration of the joy of learning” of students around the world
HÀ NỘI — More than 3,000 top-performing students from over 60 countries in Asia and Europe will participate in the global round of the World Scholar's Cup 2017 in Hà Nội next month.
The competition, which will last from June 26, 2017 to July 1, 2017, will be organised at the Việt Nam National Convention Centre.
The World Scholar's Cup has been held annually since 2006 and is considered “a celebration of the joy of learning,” created for students worldwide, aiming to enrich students with knowledge in the fields of politics, society, science, technology, history, literature, music and arts, as well as motivate them to discover new strengths and practise their English-speaking skills.

The contest has four parts: The Bowl (choosing the right answers); The Challenge (multiple-choice); Collaborative Writing (essay writing) and Debate. Participants have to go through three rounds at the regional level and mini-global rounds that take place around the world throughout the year. The global round is usually held at the end of June, and the Tournament of Champion is held at Yale University in the United States in November.
Themed 'An Unlikely World', this year, the global round of the contest will be hosted by Việt Nam-based Vinschool for the first time in Hà Nội by Vinschool, which is now one of the region's top-performing schools with 17 championships and 30 teams taking part in the global round. Two mini-global rounds will be held in Athens in Greece and Cape Town in South Africa.

Vinschool is also the only school in Hà Nội to meet the facility requirements for the contest," said Daniel Berdichevsky, founder and initiator of the contest.
In 2016, two students from Vinschool won the gold medal, a personal achievement in the Tournament of Champion.
