Awards Won at Inaugural Junior Model UN Hosted by GRU
On Wednesday, October 8, twelve of our middle school students participated in the first annual Junior Model United Nations conference hosted by Georgia Regents University, and three teams brought home awards. The EDS delegation to the United Nations General Assembly included the following students:
– Most Professional Delegates at the Conference: William Barfield and Harry Jones, Delegates representing Afghanistan
– Best Delegates from Episcopal Day School: Jack Monnig and Jack Ryan, Delegates representing the United States of America
– Best Traditional Dress at the Conference: Nicole Alleyne and Alex Bagby, Delegates representing Kenya
– Ezra Barrett and Henry Chew, Delegates representing Qatar
– Beth Coleman and Nan Woodward, Delegates representing France
– Hill Nixon and Loflin Phillips, Delegates representing Hungary
The delegates addressed two main issues: Migration/Human Rights and Terrorism/Weapons of Mass Destruction. Prior to the event, delegates researched their states and the issues to figure out how their states would actually respond to these resolutions in the real world. Delegates decided whether their states would want to pass, amend, or oppose the resolutions. Students were required to defend their positions in short speeches on the floor of the United Nations. Our students enjoyed the day of debate, negotiation, and voting with other middle school students from the CSRA.
