Thursday May 19, Day 2
The students had a very successful second day at their inaugural JMUN conference. They worked with other countries’ delegates to draft and debate resolutions in response to an international “crisis” given by the Secretaries-General.
In the afternoon, the entire conference attended the awards and closing ceremonies. Dylan Cardinal, representing Lithuania on the Regional Security Council, was awarded one of three Outstanding Delegate awards by her committee chairs; the awards recognize the delegates who demonstrate a depth of knowledge and insight into the committee’s topics. She was also awarded the gavel which is given to the delegate who displays diplomatic skill above and beyond what the committee expects. All of the SDFAS delegates said they truly enjoyed the conference experience. A great first year for the team and looking forward to next year!
