MEET THE 2019/2020 OXFORD BIG READ ASIA WINNERS
INSPIRED BY READING
This year, student champions participating in Oxford Big Read selected books of their choice from lists of qualifying OUP readers. The students’ reading selections reflect both classic and contemporary themes. Winning submissions demonstrated thoughtful design, well-crafted essays, and critical thinking.
Participating branches of Oxford University Press including Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, and Pakistan, received thousands of submissions through participating schools and institutions and choose winners in their respective national campaigns. These winners became semi-finalists in the regional Oxford Big Read Asia campaign. Below you will meet the winners of our first annual regional campaign.
