Sage snags awards at New England’s “largest middle school Model UN conference”
Students in The Sage School’s Model UN club had a lot of fun and success at the Middle School Model UN Conference last Saturday at North Eastern University. The event is described as “the largest middle school MUN conference in New England” by the United Nations Association of Greater Boston and drew more than 300 delegates.
This was Sage’s first in-person MUN conference since 2019. The school represented just 5% of the event’s population. And the school took home 5% of the awards.
Akul T. and Zarak A., representing Mexico on UNESCO 1’s committee addressing the topic of International Cooperation to Increase Access to STEM Education won the Best Speaker award. The chairs shared the following comments about Akul and Zarak:
“[they] Had very good eye contact, flow, and delivery. Came up with strong points to support their plan especially during paper QA where they defended their points with well thought-out answers practically on the spot.”
Ethan L. and Emma O., representing the Dominican Republic on UNESCO 7’s committee addressing the topic of International Cooperation to Increase Access to STEM Education won the Best Speaker award. The Chairs in that committee said the following about Ethan and Emma:
“These delegates spoke eloquently and thoughtfully on the topic of STEM education. They used each speech to further the goals of their country while commanding the attention of the room.”
These students have been asked to return for a December Invitational Model UN Conference with more details to follow.
