21 Country Day students competed in the Charlotte Middle School Model UN Conference (CHARMUN) this past weekend at Providence Day School against other area independent schools. Due to the realities of COVID-19 this was the first conference for this group of students.
The following students were recognized by CHARMUN for their outstanding work in their respective committees:
- Leighton Culp (Best Position Paper Award - United Nations Environmental Program)
- Libby Gates (Best Delegate Award - United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea)
- Keaton Riley (Outstanding Delegate Award - United Nations Environmental Program)
- Anoushka Vishwanathan (Best Position Paper - United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea)
- Karson Riley (Best Delegate - United Nations Environmental Program)
- Anya Chopra (Best Delegate - Disarmament and International Security Committee)
Model UN is a "simulation of the UN General Assembly and its other multilateral bodies where students perform an ambassador role while debating topics such as gender equality, climate action, global health, and more." Our students sat on committees, including United Nations Environmental Program, United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, and Disarmament and International Security Committee. Program like this one combined with our global curriculum help to prepare our students for a global world.
