The 5th annual US HAWKMUNC (Model United Nations Conference) took place on Nov. 11, filling four classrooms. 

The conference combined CSN’s Model UN chapter with its Harvard Model Congress in preparation for their 2023 national conventions in San Francisco (HMC) and New York (MUN).  Nearly 80 MS (see below) and US students joined together to learn the art of debate and parliamentary procedure.

The Model United Nations chambers represented two committees:  The U.N. Office on Drugs & Crime (UNODC) and the U.N. Environmental Programme (UNEP).  For UNODC, Megan Roth ‘24, representing Japan, Brooke Glick ‘26, representing the United States, and Devon Wheeler ‘23, representing Cuba, won Best Delegate for their contribution to the debate on international organ trafficking.  Outstanding Delegate went to Will Gavin ’26, Lola Estrem ‘26 won Best Delegate, and Darius Zafar ‘26 won Outstanding Delegate for their contribution to the debate over rising sea levels. Rachel Li ‘23 won the award for Best Position Paper.

The HMC debated Second Amendment and illegal immigration issues.  The committee chairs awarded Katie Whitener ‘24 Best Senator for her work representing Marsha Blackburn’s (R-Tennessee) platform.  Briana Turen ‘24 wrote the Best Position Paper for her work on the political views of Amy Klobuchar (D-Minnesota). Cameron Brenner ‘26 was named Outstanding Delegate for his work as John Kennedy (R-Louisiana).    

“The event grows each year,” said Ms. Herting, the CSN Social Science Department Chair.  “I’m proud of the kids.  They show terrific leadership and scholarship in their preparation, and they learn to be global citizens at the same time.  The conference represents everything about CSN.”
