Herricks Students Participate in the Brown University Simulation of the United Nations!

Herricks Students Participate in the Brown University Simulation of the United Nations! 

            Under the supervision of High School Social Studies Teacher Ms. Chloe Graef, 30 Herricks High School Students travelled to Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island to participate in a 3 day Model United Nations Conference. Model United Nations is an activity in which students act as delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees as well as historical scenarios. The students were tested for their public speaking skills, creativity, problem solving abilities, and diplomacy.  While all students did a great job, Viren Sehgal (10) received an Outstanding Delegate award as Armenia in GA Plenary Committee.

Students will also get the opportunity to attend EagleMUNC, a Model United Nations conference held by Boston College, in March of 2018 as well as many local conferences on Long Island. Herricks Model UN Club hosts our own conferences in January and May.
