PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- The Pace Pleasantville Model United Nations team won recognition from the National Model United Nations conference as the most Distinguished Delegations who participated this year.
This is the second-highest honor the conference awards. The award is given to the delegation that most effectively represents their assigned country, Canada in our case.
This means effectively negotiating settlements to questions and problems of international peace and security, human development and humanitarian aid. It also means "remaining in character" and playing the role of a diplomat from Canada accurately.
Six students also won Outstanding Position Paper awards in their committees. The position paper is a research paper that each student must prepare outlining Canada's foreign policy on given issue areas.
The following students earned the honor: Tayler Steinberg, Pavan Naidu, John Wrench, Balbino Rodriguez, Andre Arias and Carla Ayoub.
