Your performance during the event can lead to another unique opportunity! The Model WTO offers prizes for the best delegation and the best essays in partnership with the World Trade Institute (WTI) and the IELPO LL.M. Programme in Barcelona.

The Model WTO 2018 awards:

Best delegation

Based on a multitude of criteria, the Model WTO Team, WTO Experts, the Chairs and your fellow participants will evaluate your performance and the performance of your country-colleagues during the week. We will take a look on your arguments, your strategy but also how you involve other countries and if you really made relevant attempts to construct a consensus. It is a team event, so if you want to win, you need to make sure that your delegates in the other committees do well collectively.
