HCM CITY (VNS) — Three students from the HCM City Architecture University have won the special Holcim Prize for their "biological trash bin" project. The prize was awarded after the final round of a contest held on Saturday in HCM City.

The project, which uses worms to deal with organic waste, was applied successfully on a dragon tree trunk. It had the potential to protect the environment and improve farmers' living conditions, contest judges said. Apart from the special prize of VND70 million (US$3,333), the students also received VND200 million ($9,523) from Holcim Viet Nam to carry out the project.

The 2013 Holcim Prize contest attracted 150 projects from seven universities based in Ha Noi, HCM City, Can Tho and Da Nang. — VNS
