A group of students from Valwood School recently competed in the Model United Nations Conference at Valdosta State University.
The 32-member team represented six nations at the event, including Algeria, Canada, Ireland, Pakistan, Russia and Syria. Eight other schools, both private and public, also participated, representing nearly 25 other countries.
The Valwood students ranked among the top four delegations, and three of Valwood's teams received Distinguished Delegation honors. Winning teams were -- Ireland, represented by Justin Yanushefski, Danielle McCurdy, Katrina Van Hecke, Lauren Cloud, Daniel Frieden and Sarah Adler; Pakistan, represented by Andy Slater, Lauren Bailey, Kim Carlon, Darby Gooding, and David Keck; and Canada, represented by Will Elliott, Jessie Querin, Daniel Keck, Jen Carlon and Stephanie Tillman.
Other honors went to Valwood's position paper writers. All four of the position paper awards were given to Valwood students at this year's conference.
Winners included Kim Carlon for her work on the HIV/AIDS Conference, Philip Allen for his paper in the Security Council, Will Elliott and Jessie Querin for their work in the General Assembly, and Jen Carlon and Stephanie Tillman in the Disarmament Committee.
