MUNers Find Success at Country's Largest Middle School Conference

The CRS Model UN Team finished its second MUN conference of the year, and it's clear that the team's hard work and preparation paid off. The United Nations Association of Boston's Middle School Conference (MSMUN), held on November 20, 2021, is the largest middle school conference in the United States and our students joined delegates from across the country and world. The 19 CRS MUNers in grades 6-8 were on six different committees that addressed Protecting Health Care Rights for Indigenous People, Forced Displacement Due to Climate Change, Involving Youth Leadership in Peacemaking Processes, International Cooperation to Prevent Political Corruption, and Achieving Carbon Neutrality by 2050. 
MUN advisor Tessa Steinert Evoy wrote, "The CRS Team prepared for this conference for seven weeks. They spent time researching their respective topics, developing innovative, achievable solutions, writing position papers, and honing their public speaking and negotiation skills." 
Four CRS MUN delegates were recognized for their work at this conference: Eighth-graders Mira Haber and Jack Ehlinger, both for Best Public Speaker, along with sixth-grader Nate Newmark and eighth-grader Lara Do Rosario both for Best Negotiator.
