Model UN takes trophy at McGill for unprecedented fifth-year running

UCC’s Model United Nations (MUN) team is at it again. They took the Best Large Delegation trophy (by one point, whew!) and many individual awards at the McGill MUN conference in Montreal, Nov. 19 and 20. More than 1,500 students from schools across Canada, the U.S. and the Caribbean participated.

This victory represents the fifth time in a row UCC has taken the Best Delegation title at
McGill, an unprecedented achievement

This was an extremely challenging year, with American rival Mira Costa High School from Manhattan Beach, Calif (ranked as one of the best MUN schools in the US) coming for us. Our team also brought more than a few rookies.

Still, the UCC MUN boys prevailed. Team captains were David Niddam-Dent and Adam Rothman. Thank you also to Jo Hogan for giving up her weekend (and more) to help team adviser Matt Griem supervise.
