The Prime Minister made her comment while awarding medals, certificates and a Tk 100,000 cash as reward among 24 students during a ceremony at the city’s Osmani Memorial Auditorium.
The Prime minister awarded the winners of the 2015 and 2016 school and college talent hunt programme held across Bangladesh.
“And the future of Bangladesh is indeed bright,” she added.
Students from across the country took part in the contest in three groups—Grades VI to VII, Grades IX to X, and XI to XII.
The contest was held in four categories—language and literature, science, mathematics and computers, and Bangladesh studies and Liberation War.
The education ministry has been organising the contest since 2013. As many as 200,000 students participated this year.
