It was a productive and exciting conference and we would like to commend the delegates for their hard work and dedication. Congratulations to the delegations representing Romania and Pakistan for winning Outstanding Delegation Awards and to the delegation representing the United States of America for winning the George P.

    Hi Best Delegate!

    Just a correction, Gulf Coast took home three honorable mentions, not two 🙂

    Thanks for putting this up!

      As the Russian Federation and Japan, Gulf Coast actually only took home 2 Outstanding Delegate awards and 2 Honorable Mention awards. Including the UNMIL Crisis Committee, Gulf Coast took home 3 of each.

      • Ashley Inman

        You are correct. My apologies, I did not realize we were differentiating between the two, I thought we were only going by awards allocated to each school.

          “Gulf Coast represented Russian Federation and Japan and took home a total of 3 Outstanding Delegate awards and 2 Honorable Mention awards.” Direct quote from before it was amended to 3 Honorable Mention awards. I was pointing out that Gulf Coast also participated in the UNMIL Crisis Committee, earning another Outstanding Delegate and Honorable Mention award. Building on the first part of the original statement, mentioning only Russian Federation and Japan and NOT the Crisis Committee, it would have been 2 of each. So a mistake was apparently made, just trying to clarify. Thank you.

            Just to clarify: Gulf Coast as a school took home 3 Outstanding Delegate awards and 3 Honorable Mention awards, correct? This includes their representation in all committees.
