Model UN 2023

Rachel Niemeyer, Co-Editor-in-Chief

This week, students from all grades participated in Model UN. This event is a creative, innovative twist on most speaking events that promotes problem-solving and communication. Prior to the event, students or “delegates” are divided into countries. Each delegate then selects a committee and writes a resolution pertaining to his or her country and committee.  Students are sent resolutions of other delegates within their committees and are able to write pros and cons. Once the event arrives, delegates can choose to present their pros and cons in their committee rooms. When delegates speak in their committee rooms, it earns them points and can help their country win the esteemed ‘Best Overall Delegation.’ Below is a list of students’ accomplishments and awards from this year’s event.
