On Wednesday, March 16, twenty-two of our middle school students participated in the second annual Junior Model United Nations conference hosted by Augusta University, where Ryan D. was named Best Delegate from EDS.
The delegates addressed two main issues: Addressing the Situation of Child Soldiers and The Right to Privacy in the Digital Age. 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.

-Nan W. and Sam M., Bahamas
