The University of Connecticut Model United Nations is a student-run organization that aims to foster international awareness through its annual conference. Every November, hundreds of high school students gather at the UConn Storrs campus to participate in realistic committee simulations, engage in substantive debate, and learn from their fellow delegates. UCMUN is a learning conference, meaning that our staff aspires to guide delegates toward understanding the values of cooperation, diversity, and compromise while encouraging them to be active, compassionate leaders.
LOLHS students attending were Will Coppola, Sophie Pennie, Owen Shapiro, Zoe Brunza, Ryan Shapiro and Cameron Russell. Zoe Brunza received outstanding delegate in her committee.
Zoe shared the following:
My committee at the UConn Model UN conference this past Friday through Sunday was the Special, Political, and Decolonization Committee (SPECPOL), and I represented the U.A.E. I learned about important global issues like the South China Sea dispute and Space Colonization. Everyone in the committee was driven and passionate about our topics, and it was a great experience.
Congratulations to Zoe Brunza for winning Outstanding Delegate! GO WILDCATS!
