MUN Attends Prestigious Georgetown University Invitational

MUN Attends Prestigious Georgetown University Invitational

Santa Margarita Catholic High School’s Model United Nations program participated in the North American Invitational Model United Nations conference (NAIMUN) hosted by Georgetown University. More than 3,000 students from around the globe, including 20 countries, attended.

Students engaged in meaningful discussions on global issues such as Governance of Online Misinformation, Forced Migration and Protecting Children from Harm and Exploitation. They represented our school with distinction, demonstrating their negotiation, public speaking and problem-solving skills.

The week-long program was packed with educational and cultural experiences. The students visited George Washington University and Georgetown. They explored the National Mall, visiting the monuments of Jefferson, FDR, Martin Luther King and Lincoln, the Vietnam War, the Korean War, World War Two and the Washington Monument. The students also visited the Smithsonian Museums, visiting the US History, Natural History and Air and Space Museums. Students had the opportunity to explore Capitol Hill, including the US Capitol, the US Supreme Court, the Library of Congress and the US Botanic Garden. The itinerary also included a visit to the Korean Cultural Center, a visit to the National Cathedral and a trip to Arlington Cemetery.

The main event, the NAIMUN conference, was a platform for SM students to engage in four days of discussion of global issues and interact with students from around the world. We applaud these SM representatives who attended the prestigious event and look forward to their future contributions to global discussions.
