NMUN 2008

Sixteen FIU delegates represented the Czech Republic and were awarded the coveted Outstanding Delegation Award. 2008 marked the 3rd straight year that FIU MUN has been conferred an Outstanding Delegation. Special thanks and consideration must be given to Kathleen Black and Alexandra Acosta, Head-Delegates, for the remarkable leadership in guiding the team to such great success, teaching each class, and for inspiring their fellow delegates to the most team awards in FIU history. In 2008, FIU was the only Model UN Program to win a delegation award at both HNMUN and NMUN, which are both considered the National Championships of the Model UN Circuit.

The following delegates were members of the 2008 Outstanding Delegation:

Alexandra Acosta, Maria Alvarado, Kathleen Black, Aimee Carrero, Mat Cook, Victoria Cueto, Amanda Fernandez, Alex Diaz-Ferguson, Ray Hernandez, Robert Myers, Christian Ochoa, Michelle Oria, Darwin Rodriguez, Zeke Romero, Jennifer Ruiz, and Hunter Whaley.

Most Outstanding Delegates in Committee: NMUN offers between two and five committee awards in each committee selected by popular vote of committee delegates (number based on size of committee). When voting for their peers, NMUN asks delegates to keep in mind that the conference believes outstanding delegates are those who cooperate and stay in the policy/character of their assigned member state. Recipients are announced at the final committee session. This year FIU MUN delegates won 4 individual committee awards, which are as follows:

  • Michelle Oria and Jennifer Ruiz, General Assembly 3rd Committee

General Assembly

  • Victoria Cueto and Christian Ochoa, ECOSOC Plenary
