DANBURY, Conn. -- Students from the Wooster School in Danbury traveled to the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia to participate in the Ivy League Model UN.
Wooster represented the countries of Uzbekistan, and Bosnia and Herzegovina and sat on eight of the 24 diverse committees, ranging from traditional Model UN committees to unconventional crisis simulations.
The committees challenged and engaged delegates as they addressed some of the most relevant and interesting global issues facing the international community. To simulate the practices of the United Nations, students only sat on the committees in which true representatives from Uzbekistan, and Bosnia and Herzegovina sit on today.
Senior Ben Bratter won the award for best delegate. He was assigned the role of Noureddin Kianouri on the Iranian Revolution Council of 1979.
