PDS Model UN Delegates Get Their Game On at NAIMUN
PDS Model UN Delegates Get Their Game On at NAIMUN

Over President's Day weekend, our Upper School Model UN team journeyed to Washington, DC to participate in the prestigious North American Invitational Model UN (NAIMUN) conference for the first time. As the name suggestions, entry into the conference is by invitation only and is only offered to the most competitive teams in the U.S. and around the world.


Our 17 student delegates put a tremendous amount of time and care into preparing for their respective roles and committees. As has been their habit, they supported one another through mentorship, acting as sounding boards for ideas, providing feedback on speeches, and collaborating to derive solutions that resulted in richer outcomes. The hard work of these students once again yielded significant success, and their continued commitment to this program is evidence of the drive and passion they have for its overarching goals. It's truly been a phenomenal year for this group!
