12/8/2017 - CHS Students recognized at University of Hartford Model UN

The Model UN Club returned from a very successful simulation at the University of Hartford with multiple recognition awards for student's efforts in debate.

 Model UN students represent a country's interest on global issues and engage in debate with other students from around Connecticut using Parliamentary Procedures to find solutions to specific global issues. This year 24 students attended from Canton to debate on issues such as nuclear deterrence, protecting natural resources, building walls as borders, and access to education to name a few.  Students recognized this year were Manuela Montaya, Morgan Vacca, and Gabe Mesa for the "Innovation Award" for the most creative global solution to secure rights of children to an education while working in the UNICEF committee.  Christine Babbitt and Marissa Schroeter were recognized for "Best Delegation" in UNICEF for representing the country of Norway. Lastly, Shian Earlington and Clark Walburger were recognized for "Best Delegation" on the topic of building walls as borders while representing Spain. The club will now travel to Yale University in January. Congratulations everyone!  If you are interested in joining Model UN, please see Ms. Mocarski, the club advisor.  For some great pictures of the event, please check out our website.
