Contestants competed in four categories, including verbal popularisation, singing, dancing and theatrical acts. Performances focused on praising the Communist Party of Vietnam and President Ho Chi Minh; promoting new-style rural development; COVID-19 prevention and control; and preserving the national cultural identity, etc. Each performance lasted no longer than 30 minutes.

Their performances were consistent in the theme, lively, easy to memorise and comprehensible, and reflected harmonious combination. The most well-received included theatrical acts "Nguoi giu hon Muong” (Keeper of Muong soul) of Tan Thinh ward, "Roong mo nhan nghia” of Yen Mong commune, and "Bao ton va phat huy gia tri di san cac dan toc tinh Hoa Binh” (Preserving and promoting heritages of Hoa Binh province’s ethnic minority groups).
