In an exciting final on Saturday 13 February, Laurin was crowned the winner of the College of Europe Natolin student competition. His thoughtful but humorous talk on existential choices convinced the jury to choose him as the student speaker on April 6th. His rivals Elena and George gave equally interesting performances on the ego in negotiations (Elena) and on how you can help solve global economic inequality (George). The jury praised the high level of the competitors, but alas, only one could be crowned the winner.
