More than 80 students from eight universities were delegates in the mock negotiations and competition that took place during the three-day event in the Social Sciences & Business Building at UMSL. Three UMSL teams represented Ireland, Germany and the Netherlands, and the Germany team placed third out of 15. Two UMSL students earned first place for their individual work – Adis Alagic, Best Foreign Minister, and Mustafa Bin Beyyette, Best Contribution to Directorates-General.
