Oak Hill Students Win Awards at Christian Brothers Academy Middle Model UN

On Friday, December 2nd, Oak Hill Academy had a team of 45 (6-8th grade) students that went to CBA for their annual Middle School Model UN Conference. Model United Nations (Model UN) is a worldwide organization that gives students in middle school, high school, and college the opportunity to simulate the research, debate, and problem-solving of the real UN. As always, topics varied from current, to past, and even the future. Students had two months to prepare for this exciting platform of debating topics with students from other local schools. The students’ goal was to research and compose a two page position paper in preparation for possible resolutions to the various broad topics presented. Parliamentary procedures were enforced, topics were debated, and awards given at the closing ceremony. Oak Hill Academy brought the largest group of participants by far and won numerous awards for their outstanding performances and writing abilities. 

Awards: 

Evalina Zerres- Outstanding Delegate representing North Korea in the Uyghur Persecution

Caroline Kaytan- Honorable Mention for her position paper and Outstanding Delegate representing Ukraine in the War and Environment

Julien Wong- Honorable Mention for his position paper on Kenya in the Grand Renaissance Dam 

Morire Alao- Honorable Mention for her position paper representing Tom Cotton and Immigration

Aanya Patel- Best Delegate representing Che Guevara in Castro’s Cuba

Raina Marshall-Hooten- Best Delegate representing North Korea in Jurassic World
