2. The Peer Awards are distributed by the committee. During the last day, each present delegation may vote for the delegations, they consider most successful.
3. The Position Papers will be read by a special committee, which will choose the best written and researched papers. To qualify for this award, you will have to hand in your Position Paper on time.
