Model United Nations is a national program that replicates the work of the United Nations. Students are assigned a country to represent in a simulation of a United Nations session. They must study all facets of their respective countries politics, culture, and current events. From the perspective of the assigned country, students, serving as diplomats, must work hand in hand with other student diplomats, from “other countries,” to solve world crises. Model United Nations simulations are typically facilitated by college political science departments, with as many as 500 high school students participating from various schools. This year, Crestview participated in two Model United Nations simulations; last fall they traveled to the University of Dayton, in addition to returning from a simulation at Michigan’s Hope College this March. Between the two programs, Crestview brought home a number of awards. Award Winners include (pictured): 1st Place – Hope College Model UN: Libby Callow & Daniel Joseph (People’s Republic of China in Israel/Palestine Crisis) Distinguished Delegates – Dayton Model UN: Josh Ray & Alex Brown (Nigeria ) Kameron Grubaugh (Mexico) Libby Callow & Zack Schaadt (Nigeria.)
