National Model United Nations (NMUN) – New York 2012 Delegation Awards

by KFC on April 9, 2012

The National Model United Nations (NMUN) New York conferences took place at the Sheraton and Marriott hotels this past week with over 5,000 college delegates attending — NMUN is the largest conference in the world and the only college conference with a session at the UN headquarters. Delegates spend months preparing for this conference and NMUN provides recognition to many delegations for their hard work.

NMUN gives out three levels of delegation awards: Outstanding, Distinguished, and Honorable Mention. But it is also important to note that the NMUN philosophy believes that participation in the simulation is its own reward. The fundamental basis of the simulation is collaboration and cooperation among nations, which includes working together through multilateral diplomacy. There are no winners and certainly no losers in this process.

We’ve combined the lists of Outstanding Delegations at the Sheraton and Marriott venues below. Alma College, Brigham Young, and Wisconsin-Oshkosh notably fielded two delegations that both received an Outstanding Delegation award. Several other schools fielded multiple delegations that received recognition including Pace University which received a delegation award at all three levels.

    Wow at Oshkosh and Alma bring home 2 outstanding delegations a piece. Who would have thought two smaller sized midwest schools could bring such good competition to the world’s largest Model UN conference? Props to both schools representing the midwest USA outstandingly!

      I went to Alma College and was on their MUN team, It is a great college that provides an outstanding eduction. The NMUN conference is great because it allows smaller colleges to shine.
