The Case Western Reserve University Model United Nations team recently competed at the Harvard National Model United Nations (HNMUN) conference, winning honorable mention awards in five out of eight committee assignments.
HNMUN is considered among the most difficult Model UN conference in the world, and members of CWRU’s team beat students from more than 300 other schools and 70 countries in effectively addressing global issues.
The following CWRU representatives won awards:
Siddharth Hariharan and Matt Keri as Belarus in the Legal Committee
Lilly Tesfai as Belarus in the World Conference on Women
Ayush Gupta as Russia in the United Nations Environment Programme
Pri Chari as director of Military Intelligence
Abdullah Mohammed in the Supervisory Committee of The Nigerian Constituent Assembly, 1977
Jon Goldson as a cardinal bishop in the Special Council of The Regent Of France, 1356
The CWRU Model UN team was ranked as the 30th best team in North America last fall, and with its performance at Harvard, the team has a chance to be ranked in the top 25 teams after their next conference in April.
