Here are the nominees for the Most Outstanding Nation and Most Improved Nation Awards. The winners will be debated and voted on this week. Be ready to defend your favorite.

The Most Outstanding Nation

Audrey Lin (Italy)
There is no doubt that Audrey deserves to be considered for this award. Her hard work this year in the JN is indisputable. She worked to get her nation to the top of the points standings by completing more current events sheets and assignments than anyone. She served as one of the most effective JN Presidents of the year, making sure meetings ran smoothly and being excellently prepared for each one. She also did amazing work on the History Committee, taking good notes and posting updates about each meeting to the JN Website. Furthermore, she never let her nation get brought down by problems. Italy suffered more from problems than any other nations this year, and she always had the funds or resolutions ready to fix them all and continue to rise to the top. The standings clearly show who stood out among them all this year.

Matthew She (Chile)
While Matthew is not at the top of the wealth standings, he is close. Matthew is in the top three because of his tireless work in the JN this year. Matthew served in the JN Government almost the entire year. He took his roles seriously, passing fair judgement on all resolutions. Furthermore, while Matthew did not submit many resolutions of his own, he was by far the most vocal and well-spoken debaters at each meeting. No matter the resolution or issue being debated, Matthew shared his opinion, trying his best to sway the JN General Assembly to vote with him. Few members were so active during JN debates than Matthew, and this should be rewarded. Had work like this should be rewarded.

Wendy Hsiao (France)
There is no doubt that Wendy also deserves to be considered for this award. Her hard work this year in the JN is indisputable. She also worked to get her nation to the top of the points standings by completing more current events sheets than everyone but Italy. She also regularly completed her assignments and even extra credit vocabulary assignments to rise to the top. Her excellent work on the History Committee alongside Italy cannot be ignored. She helped take good notes and post updates about each meeting to the JN Website. Wendy followed the events of the JN closely this year. She was active in many debates and helped craft several aid requests to resolve regional problems. Despite having a challenging country that had interests in many regions and suffered from problems this year, Wendy worked hard to overcome this. The standings clearly show her outstanding work this year in the JN.
