Keeping with their winning tradition, Elon students won several awards at the conference. Sean Wilson and Niki Molinaro were given verbal commendations for their role as Iceland in NATO. Broadway Jackson and Greg Nantz were awarded honorable mention for their portrayal of Switzerland at the Congress of Vienna.
