She asked the youths to devote themselves to building the country as a developed and prosperous "Shonar Bangla".
PM Hasina called for recognising talented youths of the country, to utilise their talents and creativity in the development of the country.
She mentioned that children of the country are the most brilliant students in the world.
Sheikh Hasina said Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had undertaken various time-befitting steps to expand education across the country, recognising education as a fundamental right and rebuilt war-ravaged educational institutions.
Following the footprint of Bangabandhu, her government also put the highest importance to education as it is a must in building a poverty- and hunger-free country, she said.
