MUNers End Season with a Big First and a Big Win

It may have taken almost two full seasons, but our MUNers were finally able to compete at an in-person conference! Middle school students in the Model UN Club competed in the final conference of the year, COMMUN at the Commonwealth School in Boston's Back Bay, in late April. The Model UN conference was the first in-person MUN event since the start of the pandemic and allowed our middle schoolers to meet and work with students from area schools.

Congratulations to three CRS students, Mira H., Siena P., and Lara D., for winning Best Delegate. Committee topics included the Abyssinia Crisis, the Cybersecurity Crisis​, Vaccine Equity, Afghanistan, education, and the "Star Wars Crisis."
On Commonwealth's website dedicated to the conference, it said, "This experience is guaranteed to be both educational and inspirational for delegates, who will leave thinking about the crises around the globe and various solutions to those problems. COMMUN is not only a great place to nurture those thoughts, but one in which you are encouraged to open your mind and see what is happening in the world."
