Comprised of 19 delegates, FIUMUN delegates were tasked with representing the Kingdom of Denmark.

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 5 individual committee awards, which are as follows:

  • Anais Taboas and Jennifer Ruiz, General Assembly First Committee
