The nation of Mexico, comprised of Kateri Miller, Abby Obert, Jocelyn Herb, Cole Parker and John Harper, had a resolution move into the General Assembly round where it was found favorable.

This nation also won Outstanding Nation, a feat only two out of 147 groups accomplished.

Three of Canal Winchester delegates received trophies for Outstanding Leadership: Riley Krueger, Gage Barringer and Sydney Hinkle. In addition, Abby Obert received an Outstanding Delegate award.

Emily Clubb was the winner of the Global Agenda Issues Contest, and CWMS won the first place trophy for service project fundraising with more than $400 in proceeds from a Pajama Day held last fall.

CWMS will have 13 students running next year's OMUN event, the most positions ever obtained by any one school. Those students include council vice presidents Abby Obert, Alyssa Gebhart, Madalyn Warnimont, Alaina Reher, Allie Saulnier, Kaitlyn Swearingen and council presidents Morgan Adams, Emily Clubb, Delaney Hippler and Logan Twiss. Keji Latio was named vice president of the Human Rights Council; Lauren Toledo was named president of the Human Rights Council; and John Harper won his bid to be next year's General Assembly president, the highest office that can be held at OMUN.
