In February, our United States Travel Team traveled to Washington, DC, to compete at Georgetown University’s North American Invitational Model United Nations (NAIMUN).
Now in its fifty-ninth iteration, Georgetown University’s North American Model United Nations (NAIMUN) stands as an esteemed institution within the high school Model UN circuit, consistently offering attending delegates an unparalleled experience of peak competition, immersive in-committee engagement, and exceptional staff expertise year after year.
With students traveling from all over the world, the All-American Model UN went up against top high schools in each committee. Committees ranged in timelines, style, and subject matter, including everything from large GA double delegation committees to the interconnected National Security Apparatus (NSA) and the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).
In our last US conference of the 2022-2023 school year, we took home a Best Small Delegation, with 80% of our students winning individual awards.
We are incredibly proud of our team and excited to wrap up our US season on such a high note. Please help us in especially congratulating:
