Heather Denbow, PS History Teacher & Model UN Advisor

During the weekend of November 5-8, five intrepid CGPS Model UN members participated in the University of Connecticut Model United Nations Conference’s first-ever (and hopefully last) virtual Model UN Conference. Our students represented UN delegations from a variety of nations who presented their country’s positions and met with other delegates to collaboratively problem solve the world’s current challenges. Despite the short turnaround from signing up for the conference to participation (1 week) our delegates shone. Students diligently prepared by researching their assigned countries and topic and writing position papers. Some of the committees included the United Nations Historical Security Council, the International Law Committee and the Joint Crisis Committee - the Second Punic War.
Overall, all the delegates performed quite well. They enjoyed the fast pace of the conference and the interesting topics both historical — Rwandan Genocide and the Second Punic War — and contemporary such as international law and space exploration. Special congratulations go to Sarah R. ’24 who won the Best Delegate awards for her work in the Joint Crisis Committee on the Second Punic War!
