During the weekend of November 15-18, The Masters School's Model United Nations (MUN) team traveled to Princeton, NJ, to attend the Princeton Model UN Conference (PMUNC).
Several members of Masters' MUN team received awards and accolades:
Nora Fellas ’20, best delegate for her work in the International Court of Justice Committee
Gabriela Seguinot ’20, honorable mention for her work in the JCC Japanese Imperialism Committee
Annie Rubinson ’20, honorable mention for her work in Indian Council of Ministers

PMUNC is one of the most competitive conferences in the United States, with more than 1,000 delegates in attendance. The main purpose of MUN conferences is for students to simulate the inner workings of the UN. Students are assigned to the role of a country or particular person (for example, the secretary of state), and must research, write and present themselves as if they are acting on behalf of that country or person.
