The event was held online in 2020 due to the COVID-19, and this year Myanmar is planning to host the event in person, according to the decision of the ASEAN countries since the COVID-19 outbreak is under control with the vaccination.
To represent Myanmar in the ASEAN Regional Level Competition, a list of 43 students representing regions and states has been submitted to the Ministry of Education.
The Department of Basic Education selected 34 students, of which 5 were shortlisted. They will be trained in a training camp and will be selected three of them to represent the country in the ASEAN Regional Championship. — MNA
