The Washington Area Model United Nations Conference (WAMUNC) is a four-day exercise in diplomacy, international affairs, and global knowledge. WAMUNC prides itself on being one of the premier high school Model United Nations conferences in the world. WAMUNC’s uniqueness lies in its high quality simulations as well as its geographic location in the heart of the American capital. WAMUNC is located just outside Washington, D.C. and is fully staffed and sponsored by The George Washington University.
From January 25th to January 28th, 2018, the Greenwich High School Model United Nations team took 27 students to the 65th Harvard Model UN Conference. The conference was the largest one the college had ever hosted, including about 3,300 delegates from 50 countries.
Four GHS students were awarded for their work at the conference. GHS seniors Diana Finkel and Willa Doss and GHS junior John Fernandez received Honorable Delegate awards. GHS junior Monique Nikolov received the Best Delegate in Debate award.
From November 16-19, 30 students from the Greenwich High School Model United National team competed at the Princeton University Model United Nations Conference – a conference of around 1,100 delegates from all over the US and the world.
GHS collected eight awards despite this year’s elevated level of competition.
