Individual Committee Awards
Following delegates were eligible for committee awards:
a. those who turned in position papers by March 1;
b. those who received an extension due to a registration delay and turned in their position papers by the extended deadline.
Delegates were evaluated primarily in the following areas:
a. Diplomacy (the ability to cooperate, listen to, and compromise with other delegates);
b. Policy (the amount of research a delegate has done, reflected in their knowledge of the topics ad their country’s policy);
c. Public speaking (the ability to communicate effectively and eloquently through speeches and comments);
d. Caucusing (the ability to communicate their ideas and solutions in a productive, yet non-antagonistic way, during caucuses and in other informal settings);
e. Writing (the ability to articulate clear, comprehensive solutions to the topics through resolution and amendment writing)
Chairs do not assign numerical scores to a delegate’s speeches, resolution, caucuses etc. Instead a delegate is graded on a holistic basis. Performance at BMUN is evaluated primarily on quality, not quantity.
