HCM CITY — The Department of Meteorology, Hydrology and Climate Change on Thursday awarded top prize to three students at the Olympia Schools in Hà Nội in its outdoor painting contest in celebration of International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone layer.

One of the winners, seventh grader Nguyễn Ngọc Tâm, said that he had painted the last penguin crying for the loss of his home, family and friends because of the polar ice caps melting at the North Pole due to global warming.

Fifth grader Nguyễn Việt Thục Trang, who also won top prize, depicted a light bulb in the shape of a skull, and 10th grader Nguyễn Nhi Linh, another winner, painted a Mahesh Vara god calling for environmental protection.
