Best Large Delegation – Oak Hill Academy Model UN Team 2022

On Friday, March 4th Oak Hill Academy took a group of sixth, seventh, and eighth graders to participate in the Christian Brothers Academy’s Model United Nations competition.

NJ Private School Model UN Best Delegation

Model UN asks a lot of its middle school participants: in-depth historical research, clear writing, persuasive speaking, resilience, authentic listening, empathy, creativity, and imagination. Students are forced to think on their feet, answer questions on the fly, and compose complex arguments in cooperation with complete strangers in the span of mere minutes. The team of students worked diligently to research their countries and positions in order to be prepared for the event. The Model UN students were moderated by OHA teachers Mrs. Lydia Jain and Mrs. Linda Vacca.
