ALMA — For the 23rd consecutive year, Alma College students captured the highest awards at the National Model United Nations Conference.

Competing March 24-28 in New York City, Alma College teams representing the countries of Djibouti, Egypt and Jamaica each received “outstanding delegation” recognition, the highest award at the conference.

Alma College has now won 45 “outstanding delegation” awards — more than any college or university in the 92-year history of the conference, which began as the Model League of Nations.

The national conference in New York is the largest and most prestigious collegiate Model U.N. competition in the world, with more than 5,500 students representing 250 colleges and universities from 151 countries on five continents.

Alma College’s Maris Fett, a first-year student from Owosso, represented Jamaica.
