Model UN awards go to two Canton High Students!
Clark Walburger was awarded the "Betty Hanson Award" for most outstanding delegate of the UCONN Model UN Conference this past weekend.
This award goes to only one of over 350 delegates who attend the conference. The chair of the "Historical Crisis Committee" of which Clark served, stated that Clark was "able to reflect the difficult views of Poland with accuracy, and his motions and directives and behind the scenes crisis notes drove much of the debate throughout the conference. His superior prose as well as excellent pubic speaking ability allowed him to hold his own in a situation where the odds were stacked against him" in the tumultuous period between World War I and World War II.
Additionally, Collin Duran was awarded the "Best Delegate Award" for his committee called the "World Food Program" in which they debated ways to stop global childhood malnutrition and to combat the effects of climate change on hunger. This award is given to an outstanding individual who led the debate and accurately represented the views of their given country. In this case, Collin played the UK.
