Centre County UNA is proud to support our local students participation in Model United Nations activities. We are even prouder to tell you about their amazing success! We received a note from Ed Fitzgerald, who guides the Model UN program at the Bellefonte Area High School. The students attended conferences in Ohio and Toronto. Even with the challenges of study and competition during COVID, Bellefonte rose to the occasion. At the Ohio competition the school took first place with 36 points out of a possible total 50 points. Students also won 7 out of 13 individual awards. This is against many schools where Model UN is a class, while in Bellefonte it is an extracurricular activity. In Ohio the students won the competition in:
Security Council 1: Excellent Delegate Awards went to Bellefonte students representing Vietnam, Niger, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, and China.
Security Council 2: Excellent Delegate Awards went to Bellefonte students representing
St. Vincent & the Grenadines and China
Security Council 3: Excellent Delegate Awards went to a Bellefonte student representing
At the University of Toronto conference a BAHS student representing the nation of Niger, won an Excellent Delegate award.
We also want to recognize Mr. Ed Fitzgerald, AP Government and Politics instructor at BAHS and former President of Centre County UNA (2016-2020), for his work with Model UN. The students' success wouldn't be possible without the hard work he puts into preparing them for the competition.
Kudos to everyone involved in the program. Be proud of your success. We are!!!!
