The New York Times-APRU Asia-Pacific Student Competition 2019 required students to write an 800-word policy brief to a leader in the Asia-Pacific region (government, philanthropy, business, NGO, etc.) discussing the threats to health from air pollution and to promote practical solutions.
This booklet highlights the top-ten case submissions. Over one hundred students from 26 universities in 14 economies have submitted their entries.

the runners-up from the University of British Columbia, Candice Chan and Feifei Zhang;
and, in third place, the team from Yale-NUS College, Ng Yi Ming, Lucy Kuo and Damon Lim Wei Da.
