Western State Colorado University 11-student delegation had a fantastic showing last week at the National Model United Nations Conference in New York City. They received the honor of “Distinguished Delegation” — which equates to a second-place finish.
Western students were competing against 200 schools and 2,500 delegates from schools of all sizes from all over the country.
Western delegates received Honorable Mentions during their pervious two years of competition.
Western delegates represented the country of Malawi, and had two members that sat on the Security Council representing Lithuania. Prior to leaving for the competition, students compiled position papers on three different topics that would be widely discussed during the conference.
Students are judged on the quality of their position papers, speeches and debates during conference, resolutions written during the conference, and individual performances in committee during formal and informal sessions.

- Taylor Cull – Head Delegate
