The Upper Canada College Model United Nations team was named the best large delegation at the Columbia University Model United Nations Conference and Exposition in New York City earlier this month.
The conference is unique in that it’s crisis-oriented and delegates were forced to respond to events throughout the four-day simulation.
Expectations were high as the club was looking to retain the best delegation title it earned last year. Once again, UCC didn’t disappoint. After four hard days of debating, UCC emerged victorious. Seventeen of UCC’s 20 delegates also won individual awards.
UCC faculty members Matt Griem and Jyoti Sehgal organized the successful trip and supervised the school’s delegates while they were in the Big Apple.
