EDISON, NJ -- A group of 29 delegates from the Model United Nations (MUN) Club at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison participated in a four-day Model UN Empire Conference at NYU from Dec. 10-13, where they learned about diplomacy, motions, caucuses and resolutions.

They negotiated, debated and strategized with students from around the world as far away as Thailand and Pakistan. As always, they made great friends and connections with students who also have a vested interest in making the world a better global community. W-H came out strong against veteran teams in its second year at the Empire MUN Conference.

While all delegates are winners in the level of experience gained in the realm of global interconnectedness, six W-H team members received special recognition:

At the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.
