Model UN Wraps Up Successful Conference Season

By Jonatas Cavani May 22, 2016

This weekend, we took a group of 9 students to compete on Yale-MUN at Seoul Olympic Parktel. This was our 3rd and last conference of the year.

The following students received special recognition:

- Martin Y. (11) received an honorable mention (3rd place) while representing the French NASA, Centre National d'Études Spatiales (CNES), on the Mars Constitutional Convention.

- Soumin S. (10) received an outstanding delegate award while representing Germany on the UNHCR (UN Refugee Agency).

- Gina S. (10) received a best delegate award while representing Bolivia on the Social, Cultural, and Humanitarian Committee. Gina stood by her country's foreign policy and advocated the use of Child Soldiers in war, and that's precisely what made her committee, otherwise boring, very interesting.

We had a very successful MUN season this year (e.g. BUSUN at Brown, GECMUN in Jeju) and are very glad at seeing the fruits of the decisions that were we made last year of adult oversight and setting high standards for our MUN Varsity Team.
