Participants in Model Illinois Government have the opportunity to compete for and earn several prestigious awards throughout the simulation. Award recipients are chosen by an Awards Committee chaired by the Comptroller. Awards are presented at the end of the simulation and students may also campaign for executive leadership roles (Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Comptroller, etc.) in order to take a more active role in the organization of the simulation. Southeastern Illinois College's Model Illinois Government team has received many OUTSTANDING DELEGATION AWARDS throughout their participation in the simulation. Awards received are as follows:

2004 Outstanding Small Delegation
2006 Outstanding Large Delegation
2007 Outstanding Small Delegation
2009 Outstanding Small Delegation
2011 Outstanding Large Delegation
2012 Outstanding Small Delegation
2014 Outstanding Small Delegation
2015 Outstanding Large Delegation

These awards are determined by the total amount of awards and/or offices gained by each delegation attending the simulation. Awards and offices gained each year by the SIC MIG team are listed on the menu to the left.
