Model UN Conference

On April 3, Model United Nations (UN) club members went to Johns County Community College (JCCC) in Kansas City, Missouri, to participate in a Model UN conference.

Model UN is a club where students research world issues and stances by the countries and try to come to a solution that benefits each country at the end of the year. Model UN conferences are held throughout the year where students represent different countries and try to come to a solution on a topic that is being discussed in the UN.

Brian Corrigan, the sponsor of the club, is happy with the success at the conference. “We won Best Delegation for the United States of America, three Outstanding Position Awards, and four Outstanding Delegation Awards,” Corrigan said.

Senior Hope Adamson was among the many students who attended the conference. “I have been involved with Model UN since freshman year, I won an Honorable mention.”

Adamson also stated why she decided to participate in Model UN all four years in high school. “I have a really fun time, and it helped me get into politics that I want to continue to learn about through my life and Model UN really helped me with politics,” Adamson said.

Sophomore Emma Schudel had a different reason she decided to join Model UN. “I got into Model UN from being in Mr. Corrigan’s class, so this was my first year in Model UN.”

Schudel won Best Delegation for the United States of America. Schudel said, “You learn about current issues, very fun to interact, learn about problem-solving, and Mr. Corrigan is very fun.”

Model UN allows students to simulate what leaders experience for trying to come to a decision that also benefits all countries. The next Model UN conference will be held next April. For more information about Model UN, see Mr. Corrigan in room G214B.
