Our Award Policy:

  • We award delegates based on their best adherence to their nation's true policy instead of their individual beliefs.
  • Within double delegations, we give awards based on best overall cooperation and teamwork between the delegates. For instance, if there were delegates representing one country in a General Assembly and one of the delegates was outstanding while his partner was not as participatory in committee, we would rather reward representatives in which both partners contributed a significant amount to committee.
  • Though we value speech and rhetoric talent, we value determination, effort, and participation more.
