Model UN Participates in WASMUN Conference

Model UN Participates in WASMUN Conference

March 6, 2017 – This past Saturday and Sunday, seven students from the SAAS Model United Nations Club (Ben Adams ‘20, Heldana Daniel ‘19, Stella Esensten-Cicon ‘17, Evin Jaff ‘19, Else Ratzliff ‘17, Danny Scherzer ‘20, and Grace Vidger ‘18) participated in the Washington State Model United Nations conference at the University of Washington.

Over the two days, the conference simulated the United Nations, and students participated in committees including the General Assembly, the International Court of Justice, the UN Habitat Committee, and the Summit for Refugees. SAAS students represented several countries and worked with delegates from other area schools to draft working papers and resolutions to fix some of the world’s most pressing problems.

With mostly first-time Model UN participants, the club was excited to get some experience and looks forward to more conferences in the future!
