Georgia Southern University Students Earn Multiple Honors at Model United Nations Competition
Georgia Southern University’s Model United Nations delegation earned multiple honors at the world’s largest Model U.N. simulation held in New York City this past weekend.
The National Model United Nations Conference included more than 600 delegations from every continent (except Antarctica.) Of those, the Georgia Southern University delegation was named an Outstanding Delegation and was recognized for Outstanding Position Papers.
“The numerous awards and recognitions the Georgia Southern University Model U.N. delegation received placed them in the top one percent of all the delegations who attended this year’s event,” said Georgia Southern Model U.N. faculty director and political science professor Barry Balleck. “Once again our students have proven their ability to compete on an international level against some of the most respected institutions in the world.”
In addition to the Outstanding Delegation and Outstanding Position Paper awards, the Georgia Southern delegates participating in the General Assembly 2nd committee were chosen by their peers to address more than 600 students at the opening of one session of the Model United Nations General Assembly.
Georgia Southern was also recognized as one of only seven schools which have had 40 or more years of constant participation in the National Model United Nations Conference.
