NASPAA-Batten Student Simulation Competition Announced 2019 Global Winners
This year, nearly 600 students from 147 universities in 27 countries took part in the NASPAA-Batten Student Simulation Competition. Participants competed at 11 global host sites from Dhaka and Cairo to Mexico City and San Francisco. Developed by experts at the University of Virginia’s Center for Leadership Simulation and Gaming, this year’s simulation, Host Nations, was built using real-world data and challenged students to work together to manage a migrant influx in a fast-paced environment.
Judges at each site selected 13 winners from the 116 competing teams based on simulation scores, negotiation skills, and policy presentations. From these finalists, a panel of four prominent global experts recently has identified the Global Winners of this year’s competition.
Congratulations to all the students who participated in the competition, and to the top three teams! This is an outstanding accomplishment!
