Adam Alberski, Ryan Avery, Aman Avvaru, Shika Bitkuri, Evan Carey, Joshua Coton, Sai Dasari, Sophie Gerchikov, Lauren Horstmyer, Suhani Iyer, Sayeed Kahn, Michael Neal, Edward Searing, Shashank Shamshabad, Massoud Sharif, Isabella Smith, and Jessa Smith.

Also on the trip were the club's advisors, Social Studies teacher Derick Kopff and English teacher Kristen Harrington.

Shika Bitkuri was awarded Outstanding Delegate as Gamal Mubarak in the Egyptian Government and Military Crisis Committee. Massoud Sharif was awarded Outstanding Delegate as Maurizio Di Gaetano in the Second Council of Lyon (1245) Historical Committee.
