Stevenson’s Model United Nations Team Off To Strong Start

With multiple honors in its first three conferences, Stevenson’s Model United Nations team is developing into a formidable local and national competitor. Members of the Model UN Team research current world issues and represent various countries at Model United Nations conferences. Students work individually and in teams to accurately represent their assigned countries in crisis situations and in-depth simulations of current and past United Nations topics.

Last weekend at the Princeton University Model UN Conference, a national competition, Stevenson earned the Honorable Small Delegation Award. Specific awards were given to Samarth Arul (Best Delegate), Sydney Lam and Stone Yan (Outstanding Delegates), Pranav Meraga and Tej Kosaraju (Honorable Mentions), Swathi Sureshmoothy, Jonathan Tao, Pranav Atluri and Ayush Bajaj (Verbal Commendations), and Michael Kirylau and Saksham Prakash (Best Position Paper).

Two weeks ago at the Brown University Model UN Conference, a national competition, and the St. Ignatius Conference, which featured top programs in the Chicago area, the Patriots also won multiple honors.

At the Brown conference, Eshaam Bhattad and Jesenia Parthasarathy took best honors, Eric Yang was named outstanding and Medha Mamidipaka made honorable mention. At the St. Ignatius conference, Anthony Makhovik, Anmol Dash, Maddie Wang and Olivia Lee earned best honors, Elijah Cherian, Aditi Boddu, Aarushi Sharma, Mia Korsunsky and Matthew Lewis were named to the outstanding list and Sia Shetkar, Aydin Akad, Sherry Wang and Ahana Titus made honorable mention.
