Congratulations to the HSAS Model UN Team
Congratulations to the HSAS Model UN Team for their victory at the Lab High School Model United Nations Competition! Students competed in committees on topics ranging from a futuristic war to the illicit arms trade. The team took home 16 of the conference's 24 awards, including all 6 of the Best Delegate Awards. The Lab Conference was the second of the year, preceded by the Global Classrooms conference held at CCNY in February, where the team won the Secretary General's Award, and five of the six best delegate awards. We hope the team's winning streak continues, bringing them to the International Conference held in May at the United Nations!
