Nominees for 2017-2018 JN Awards

posted May 3, 2018, 12:53 AM by Jason Brunken   [ updated May 3, 2018, 12:53 AM ]

Here are the nominees for the Most Outstanding Nation and Most Improved Nation Awards. All first year students in the JN are eligible to win the Rookie of the Year Award. Nominees will be collected from the General Assembly at the next meeting. The winners will be debated and voted on at the next meeting. Be ready to defend your favorite.

The Most Outstanding Nation

Leo Lin (India)
There is no doubt that Leo deserves to be considered for this award. His accomplishments are numerous. Not only has he accumulated more wealth than any other nation in the history of the JN, but he was active each week as part of the History Committee to make sure the JN ran smoothly. He also served on the Senate for a time. Leo did everything that asked of him and more as a member of the JN. He was instrumental in getting the Human Rights resolution passed as well. It is hard to imagine a better performance for a JN member than Leo gave this year.

Eugene Chiu (U.K.)
While Eugene did not finish at the top of the wealth standings, he was close. Eugene placed in the top three because of his work in the JN this year. Eugene worked hard to say active. He led the JN for two terms as successful well-prepared President, showing that he is a leader and hard worker. He also served on the Senate where he often put others first in his decision making. Eugene helped build alliances and maintain peace in the JN as well. He was also quite active in debates over resolutions. 

Jefferson Wu (Italy)
While Jefferson did not finish at the top of the wealth standings, he was close. Jefferson placed in the top three because of his work in the JN this year on the History Committee to make sure everyone knew what was happening from week to week in the JN. He modeled for younger members how to handle your country’s problems by attending so well to his own country’s needs. Jefferson also served on the Senate for a number of weeks.

Most Improved Nation

Jefferson Wu (Italy)
Jefferson improved his standing from second to last place last year to the top 3 this year. He was more active in politics and member of the JN History Committee. He showed improved responsibility in handling and attending to his country’s problems. 

Yoyo Tan (Turkey)
Yoyo improved from last place last year to being near the top 5 this year. While Yoyo stayed out of politics in the JN, his improved performance can be seen in how often Yoyo wrote and presented resolutions and aid requests. He wrote some of the best, most well-researched aid requests of the year and was good about being on top of his country’s problems, unlike last year.

Eugene Chiu (U.K.)
While Eugene placed in the top 3 both last year and this year, he was far more active this year. He served as president and on the Senate. He played a leading role in alliance building and did a good job modeling for younger nations how to handle their country’s problems. He was also more active during resolution and aid request debates.
