Winners of the Oxford Big Read Competition 2019
Oxford Big Read is a reading competition for primary school students in Malaysia. The competition aimed to introduce school children to quality reading materials and to inculcate in them a life-long love of reading, leading to appreciation of the written word, and better learning and critical thinking skills.
