Salem Academy Model UN Club excels at UNC-Chapel Hill Conference

Salem Academy’s Model United Nations Club competed in the annual Model UN conference at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (called MUNCH) from February 21-24. Ten students were divided into seven delegations. They represented nations such as Germany, Brazil, and Madagascar, and participated in various crisis committees including Press Corps, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for the 2020 presidential campaign, and the current crisis in Venezuela.

Three Salem delegations won awards at the conference: Izzy Pare won Outstanding Delegate (2nd place) for representing MSNBC in the Press Corps committee, Peace Ajirotutu won Outstanding Delegate for portraying Senator and presidential candidate Kamala Harris in the DNC 2020 committee, and Tochi Okoli and Jeanine Ikekhua won Best Delegation (1st place) for representing Germany in the World Health Organization (WHO) committee.

In addition to these individual awards, Salem Academy also won the Best Small Delegation award, which was presented for the performance of the entire Salem delegation at the conference. It is the first time that Salem has won the first place school delegation award at the UNC conference. All ten students performed extremely well and impressed their committee chairs with their poise, speaking skills, and knowledge of their assigned topics. Their performance was especially impressive given the record number of students who attended the conference – over 750 students from dozens of high schools in the Southeast. Salem Pride!
