Students Take Distinguished Delegation Award at Model United Nations Conference
(NORTHRIDGE, Calif. April 13, 2009) The CSUN MUN team won a Distinguished Delegation Award representing Sierra Leone at the National Model United Nations conference in New York this week. That represents a second place finish for the team.The following individuals participated on the team:
Marguerite Sanvictores (Head Delegate)
Romi Said (Head Delegate)
In addition, 15 students not attending the New York conference attended a WestMUN conference in Santa Barbara from April 2-4th. Steve Martinez won a Best Delegate Award representing Burkina Faso in the General Assembly.
All in all, it’s been a really good year for a number of reasons. First, our budget amounted to over $42,000, thanks to the efforts of the students. Second, we added the China conference to the program. This conference should be considered on a par with the New York conference in terms of its demands. We now attend 6 conferences during the academic year. And most importantly, I am beginning to notice that we are attracting really good students to the program because of the reputation.
