Student participants in the UN panel
On May 6 Newmarket’s first ever Model UN club attended the inaugural UNH Model United Nations high school conference. The participating students picture above represented the countries of China, Thailand, Nigeria, Italy,and Brazil, and wrote position papers on the complete eradication of chemical weapons, and providing protection and assistance to victims of chemical weapons. At the conference these students gave speeches, caucused with other countries and helped draft resolutions. Four of our students received awards for best position papers. They were Ben LeBeau, Zoe McGuirk, Taylor Kennison, and Sierra Yim. All of our Newmarket representatives did an outstanding job and are to be congratulated!
