The Netherlands — Malcolm Bryant, Zoe Chavis, Millie Jones, Andrew Bruce, Jahon Nasoori, Juliana Cote, Colin Crawley, Jacob Lockyear, Adri Klika, Deisy Ruiz, Caleb Nelson, and Emily Bruce — were awarded third best country delegation out of those 80.
Senior Andrew Bruce (Industrial Development Organization, Netherlands) and junior Don Kim (Economic and Financial Committee, Japan) won Best Delegate in both their committees and will become the first delegates to ever represent Siegel at the national competition in New York City this upcoming March.
Freshman Emily Bruce (International Maritime Organization, Netherlands) and sophomore Grace Puzzo (Social and Humanitarian Committee, Philippines) were also recognized with Honorable Mentions for their performances in committee.
