Top 5 Finalists in Wikistrat's Grand Strategy Competition

Most Resilient Grand Strategy Award Winner

In this post we wish to recognize some of the best teams which participated at Wikistrat's Grand Strategy Competition that took place throughout June. In a very close race with winning-team Claremont Graduate University was the Oxford Team, which finished in the 2nd and highly respected place.

In addition to finishing at the second place, Oxford students won the "Most Resilient Grand Strategy Award" for their impressive Grand Strategy, playing the European Union. Their work was noted by Thomas PM Barnett is his WPR Column, and by the Atlantic Sentinel here and here.

With 4 overall #1 ranking (across 16 tasks), Oxford team has made a tremendous effort and deserve every recognition. Well done!

Top 5 Teams

The third most prestigious prize - Creative Strategic Thinkers Team - was awarded to the School of Oriental and African Studies (CISD), playing China.

The full top 5 finalists are:

  1. Claremont Graduate University Team
  2. Oxford University Team
  3. The School of Oriental and African Studies Team
  4. Cambridge (CISA) Team
  5. Ohio State University Team

Individual Awards

In the competition we have witnessed dozens of proactive strategic thinkers, eager to collaborate, research and contribute. If we could, we would mention many of them here as they truly are promising emerging strategic thinkers.

We would like to pay special recognition to the winners of the Most Active Participants awards. These individuals were the most active, collaborative and wiki-savvy participants:

  • Heloise Crowther (Sussex Team)
  • Roman Muzalevsky (Yale Team)
  • Teale Phelps Bondaroff (Cambridge Team)

 

Congratulations to all winning teams and individuals!
