AU Students Win Outstanding Delegation Award at Model Arab League Competition

Ashland University’s Model Arab League team won first place at this year’s Ohio Valley competition held at Miami University. In addition, AU students Jackson Yenor, Rick Platt, Josh Frey, Tyler MacQueen, Joey Barretta and Naomi Sims won individual “outstanding delegate” awards, and Sophia Leddy won a “distinguished chair” award.

Model Arab League, similar to its bigger sister Model UN, recreates a summit meeting of an international organization, in this case the Arab League. Each university team is assigned one country and represents its interests on five different councils, ranging from defense to economic affairs. The aim in each council is to write a resolution in response to a pre-set agenda on which all countries agree, which, however, should also reflect one’s own interests.
