Congratulations to the BLSA International Negotiation Competition team for winning 3rd place in the nation at last weekend’s competition in Washington, D.C. Team members are Valerie Fleurima and Nazareth Haysbert.
One exciting part of this competition is the time frame for preparation. While they were given some general information beforehand, the side they were representing and the secret facts for their side were not provided until a few hours before each round. Cheryl Wattley, the team, and I spent a few hectic hours researching each time the topic changed (about every two rounds over three days).
The team missed second place by one point, but we are very happy with the win in the “second runner up” round which placed them 3rd.
This was our first year to enter this competition, and I was impressed by the administration of the tournament and the fact patterns. FYI: The topics covered the debt crisis in Greece, the maritime border dispute between Israel and Lebanon, and Brazilian mining in Mozambique.
