Awards

SAIMUN delegates who truly excel in their committees, who show profound understanding of the topics under discussion, an appreciation of diplomacy, mediation and negotiation, and who are able to lead their co-participants to balanced resolution of the problems at hand, are recognised for their efforts and skill with official awards.

Committee Awards

  1. Best delegate award: Each committee will award the best overall delegate. The Best Delegate Award is attributed to the delegate that excelled through his/her performance during the conference, being well prepared, following the Rules of Procedure to the letter and spirit, working with his/her fellow delegates and the Board of his/her committee.
  2. Best position paper award: This is awarded to one delegate in each committee whose position paper stood out among the rest in terms of research, practicality and how well it does once presented.
  3. Most diplomatic award: These are given to those who embrace the principles of cooperation and dialogue throughout the diplomatic exercise that leads to the adoption of a resolution.
