Danielle Ashbahian won honorable mention in the Paris Climate Change Summit and Anna Burnett and Andrew Haneman won honorable mention in the Disarmament and International Security Committee. Sophia Ramcharitar was awarded honorable mention in the Council of Europe and Harry Schlechter was awarded honorable mention in the FIFA committee.
