Each MoU has the right to pick a student to represent their Association in the competition. 

This year, five students participated in the competition! 

Junhyeok Jang and Hyejun You – SAREK/Korea, arrived second. Yashu Zhao – CAHVAC/China secured the third place, and Tatsuya Miyata – SHASE/Japan won the prize for  best poster. ASHRAE representatives, Ahmad Faiz Khan and Amanda Webb arrived fifth.
