Model UN Team Earns Outstanding Large Delegation Award
Nine cadets of the United States Military Academy Model United Nations team traveled to New Haven, CT to participate in the Yale University Model United Nations Conference (SCSY) hosted by Yale University, and earned the "Outstanding Large Delegation" award, which is equivalent to second place. SCSY presented the cadets from the West Point MUN team with the opportunity to develop public speaking skills, gain knowledge of international affairs and represent the U.S. Army and USMA in a professional and positive way to a student audience.
Schools in attendance included Princeton University, UC Berkeley, Harvard University, and the University of Pennsylvania, among many others. Cadets participated in several interesting debate topics including but not limited to; the challenges of negotiating foreign relationships and economic interactions in the Taiwan Strait, the military conflict of the Peloponnesian War, the Kashmir conflict, and a historical simulation of the NAFTA Renegotiations.
