The Model United Nations club is one of the top academic clubs here at Hamilton. We focus on world and current events in academic competitions against other high schools. In Model UN, each student is assigned a country to research and then is given several problems in which to present solutions. Students are scored on their ability to be a delegate and how they represent their country, as well as on the papers they write and present.Our first competition will be at Westwood High School in October for our novice members. Last year we took home 6 out of 8 awards. In November we will again attend the ASU conference. In 2017 we took home many awards for best paper, best delegate, and best diplomat, we also won the best country award. In February 2018, we attended our third conference sponsored by Mesa Community College. We took home 29 distinguished delegate awards as well as multiple awards for policy papers, top diplomat and top delegate awards. Our country of China took home the top country awards. A fantastic performance by all 64 students. Next year's Mesa MUN conference will be February 2019.If you would like to know more about the club, please contact Mr. DeBruin (N 105) or Mrs Hendricks (N 116) at Hamilton.Our first informational meeting is Monday, August 6 at 2:20 in Mr. DeBruin's room, N 105.
