North American University Model UN Delegation Awards

Harvard photoModel United Nations is not about the awards, however awards can be a great way for conferences to recognize teams for their diplomacy, knowledge of topics, debate skills, and leadership. While at the end of the school year we will release our annual rankings, we also want to provide this page as a running list of delegation awards from North American University Model UN conferences for the year.

We’ve reached out to dozens of conferences so far and will continue to reach out to conferences throughout the year and continually update this page as conferences send us their delegation award info. If your university conference of at least 300+ delegates is missing from this list, please tell us your delegation awards and we will update this list as soon as possible.

The North American collegiate Model United Nations community is informally divided into two circuits, which we refer to as the National Division and the World Division.

  • The National Division teams tend to be led by faculty advisors, focus on the academic and educational aspects of the conference, and attend about 2-3 organization-hosted conferences per year that give out many school awards but de-emphasize competition by usually not formally giving out individual awards from appointed chairs.
  • The World Division teams tend to be led by college head delegates, focus on the competitive and social aspects of the conference, and attend about 5-6 college-hosted conferences per year (with a majority of them being crisis simulations) that give out many individual awards but only a few school awards. More details about both divisions can be found here.
