Today we started off with the first, and last thing in this meeting-- awards. First of all, the Most Outstanding Nation. There were three nominees, Jacqueline, Ellen and Eugene. After some nice compliments about the nominees and the votes were given, congratulations Jacqueline who was chosen as the most outstanding nation!! *cheers*

Next was the Most Improved Nation. Again, there were three nominees, Josh, Eugene and Jefferson. The choice seems to be easy for most of the people--Josh! Congratulations! *cheers again*

Moving on to Rookie of the Year, the three nominees were Ellen, Jessica and Yoyo. All three of them are outstanding in different ways, but most votes went to Ellen, making her the Rookie of the year.

After that, the awards for most wealthy countries were given. In third place with a total wealth of 355.7 resource points, Josh! *cheers* Second place with a total wealth of 369 resource points, Eugene! *cheers* And in first place, with a total wealth of 503.5, a big gap from second place, Ellen! *cheers*

Then, we moved on to the song of the year. Choices were shape of you, something like this, good life, can’t hold us, and time of our life, and “Time of our life” won the song of the year with 6 votes.

Next was number of the year. Some great ideas were given, but the number that was chosen was 74. With three 7th graders, four 8th graders, one 10th grader and one 11th grader, the total of our grade numbers add together is 74.

At last was word of the year. Weird choices were given*haha*, there were duh, wow, obvious, berrytree and EKSJ. Three votes were given to “duh”, and was chosen as the word of the year.

This is the end of our last meeting of the year. This year was really exciting, happiness, sadness, confusion and of course laughter and a lot more emotions mixed all in one. A phenomenal year, nice work everyone~!

And this year's nominees are...

posted Apr 28, 2017, 2:55 AM by Jason Brunken

Here are the nominees for the Most Outstanding Nation and Most Improved Nation Awards. The winners will be debated and voted on at next week's meeting. Be ready to defend your favorite. Winners get a special prize.

The Most Outstanding Nation

Jacqueline Wu
There is no doubt that Jacqueline deserves to be considered for this award. She presided as leader of the JN for most of the year, and ran meetings efficiently and fairly. She was always well-prepared and provided a mature, confident voice to JN discussions and meetings. Even when she was not the President, she served on the History Committee for the whole year and helped other nations handle their business when they were struggling. It is hard to imagine what the JN would have been like without Jacqueline.

Ellen Lee
As the wealthiest nation for much of the year, Ellen must be considered for this award. Not only did she complete the most Current Events than any other member, but was active during most discussions and proposed three resolutions and many requests for aid this year. She gave service to the JN Government as a Supreme Councilwoman and served in the History Committee for half of the year. Her help and hard work made the JN more successful this year. There is little doubt that Ellen's performance in the JN was one of the best of the year.

Eugene Chiu
Eugene was more active than ever this year. He proposed and passed the most resolutions of all members this year. Many of these resolutions were original ideas that he went through the effort to write down and try to pass in the JN. Eugene also finished toward the top of the wealth rankings this year which is evidence of his hard work as a member. Eugene was one of only three members to complete Current Events this year as well. His work in the JN Government also cannot be overlooked as he served most of the year on the Supreme Council. He is worthy of recognition of this honor.

Most Improved Nation

Josh Lung
The last time Josh was a member of the JN, his country finished in last place with a total wealth of just 20. This year, Josh may be one of the Top 3. The last two years Josh spent in the JN, he participated very little in JN activities, but this year Josh was a leader, serving as Supreme Council, President, and general. Furthermore, Josh also introduced and passed a few resolutions and aid requests, something he had never done before.

Eugene Chiu
While Eugene finished in a similar position in the wealth standings this year, his participation and involvement in the JN improved significantly this year. He proposed the most resolutions of all nations compared to just one last year. He was active in forming alliances, speaking in debates, and participating in the government all year. All of which are improved from his work last year in the JN.

Jefferson Wu
Jefferson improved his wealth ranking this year a little., but more importantly he was reluctantly more participatory in the JN than last year. He proposed more resolutions and requests for aid this year and was more active in debates. He served in the government for a while as well.
