UCONN MUN

Eight of our MUNers attended this year's UCONN Model UN conference.  The delegates were:  Emmerson, Sia, Claribel, Seamus, Marlah, Michael H., Piper and Brendan.  It was a great few days with our kids, and over 300 other students, grappling with pressing international issues such as Black Market Arms Trading in the 21st century, Taiwan-China relations, integrating refugees into the society of the host country and combatting the effects of climate change on hunger.  Our delegates did so well.  For Emmerson, Sia, Claribel, Michael and Brendan, it was their first-ever conference.  Very few awards are given in MUN conferences; UConn decreased it even further this year only giving 2 awards per committee.  Amazingly, Westfield won 4!!  Michael H. (a first timer!), Brendan (also a first timer!) and Piper all won Best Delegate Awards in their committees - the highest award given.   Marlah, in the very intense Security Council, won a Most Improved Delegate Award.  Congratulations to these 4 and to all our MUNers for a job very well done!!
