Awards were given for students performing well in individual committees and as a delegation.  The two award categories were Outstanding Delegate, for the best three individuals in a specific committee, and Honorable Mention Delegate, for three additional delegates in each committee.

Arkansas Tech students earned five individual delegate awards. Mandy Wilson received an honorable mention representing Kuwait on the Council of Arab Social Affairs Ministers.

The following students received an Outstanding Delegate award:

  • Steven Rowlen representing Libya on the Council of Arab Social Affairs Ministers.
  • Micah Hunter representing Libya on the Council on Political Affairs
  • Brandon Tucker representing Libya on the Joint Defense Council
  • Christopher Williams representing Libya for the Special Summit of Arab Heads-of-State.

The Overall Outstanding Delegation award was presented to the group representing Libya. Members of that group were Steven Rowlen, Micah Hunter, Brandon Tucker, Christopher Williams, Morgan Hope Keeling and Lauren Graham. The group was advised by Dr. Christopher Housenick.

This was the second time Arkansas Tech students have competed at this conference. Twelve schools participated from Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas and Colorado.
