EDISON, NJ -- Even after losing many seniors in the previous year, The Model United Nations team from The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison has come back stronger than ever. The W-H team recently attended the prestigious AMUN XVIII conference and returned home with solid recognition.

In this two-day conference, delegates were forced to face off with various schools from around the world in heated debates. The 10 W-H delegates were matched up with the best members of opposing teams and put into a highly competitive environment. The delegates negotiated and debated to the best of their abilities and held strong against the experienced teams.

The W-H team managed to bring home the first ever Best Small Delegation award in recent Wardlaw-Hartridge history. Zishan Sajid of Carteret and Simu Singh of Monroe earned Best Delegate distinction and Dazlyn Erachshaw of Iselin received honorable mention. Other team members were Andrew Park of Westfield, Andrea Tobar of South Plainfield, Eddie Martinez of Scotch Plains, Jasjeet Singh Kandola of Carteret, Pooja Nandhyala of Edison, Sreeja Arumilli of Edison and Camilla Fang of Edison.
