The LMUN Award Policy

We at the Lagos Model United Nations have established a criteria for evaluating delegates’ performances, where each element is as important as its counterpart to the overall determination process. All committees are weighed equally and are rated with a mathematical formula based on performance throughout the whole sessions.

Our staff has received training in evaluation and ensuring that the best are rewarded. Overly competitive delegates will not be considered as it is against the spirit of diplomacy that we seek to promote.

Considerations points for award eligibility
Remaining in
Character

Delegates are to emulate the work of diplomats from that country and their modus operandi. Being in character means modelling after your country but not in line with negative stereotypes associated with the country assigned. Yelling, standing on chairs, aggressiveness and other arbitrary acts are not staying in character.

Participating in the Committee

We recognize that your countries position may be opposition or a negotiator, but we expect delegates to support their respective committees facilitating a flow of work. This is evaluated during both formal and informal sessions. Interrupting committee sessions at intermitted will be seen as going against this criteria.

Proper Use of Rules and procedures

Issuing the rules of procedure and the delegate preparation guide is why we want to ensure that proper use of rules of procedure is taken into consideration by the delegates to ensure full participation. Yelling, standing on chairs, aggressiveness and other arbitrary acts are not staying in character.
