Philadelphia Model United Nations Award!

Model UN

The Newmarket High School Model United Nations team won Best Small School at the four-day conference in Philadelphia. There were approximately 30 high schools and 600 students that attended the conference over February vacation. Taylor Kenison and Mahammad Hajiyev also won Best Delegate in their committee United Nations Human Rights Council, while representing Venezuela. It was a very successful four days, as we had students representing Venezuela, Turkey, and Kazakhstan on advanced crisis committees like the UN Security Council addressing Counter-terrorism! Earning the "Best Small School" award would not have been possible without the help from Mr. MacDonald, Dr. Lyon, and Mr. Webb, our club advisors, and chaperones. Congratulations to our students for their hard work, discussing world issues and practicing diplomacy.
