Kolkata/IBNS: Oxford University Press (OUP) India has announced the launch of 5th edition of the Oxford Big Read Global competition, an annual reading competition aimed at promoting good reading habits among primary and secondary school students.

The Oxford Big Read, India’s first and broadest extensive reading competition, is open to all students from classes 1-9 studying in schools across India.

The Oxford Big Read Global competition provides an excellent opportunity for students to develop good reading habits which will inculcate many positive traits that will empower children later in life.

Participating in the competition will not only give them an opportunity to read and enjoy quality texts but will also develop a lifelong passion for reading with the added benefit of winning gifts and certificates that will keep them motivated. 

Speaking about the competition, Sumanta Datta, MD, Oxford University Press India, said, "We are thrilled to announce the Oxford Big Read Global Competition in India and encourage students to develop a lifelong love of good reading. The competition provides a fantastic opportunity for students to engage in reading and broaden their horizons through the power of literature.

"Our mission with Oxford Big Read has always been to support education by focusing on a better future, society and world. We hope that this competition will inspire young minds across India to explore the world of books and discover the joy of reading."

This year, OUP has collaborated with Faber-Castell. Students participating in the Level 1 category can win exclusive gift hampers from Faber-Castell.
