A total of 303 candidates have been selected to be national ethical role models and the list will be released on major media sites Tuesday.
Around 60 candidates were chosen for their outstanding deeds of helping other people, 60 for acting bravely for a just cause, 56 for being honest and trustworthy, 65 for working hard and making great contributions and 62 for showing filial piety and love for their family.
The candidates were selected from all walks of life such as workers, farmers, military personnel, teachers and doctors.
Representative candidates with brilliant achievements include Du Fuguo, a demining soldier who lost his eyes and arms in an explosion, and Zhang Fuqing, a 95-year-old war hero.
A vote will be held to decide the national ethical role models after the list is released.
