Model United Nations Tournament held at ONU

The 12th annual Model United Nations competition sponsored by Ohio Northern University brought 90 students from 10 high schools to campus on Oct. 4. During the day-long simulation, students assumed the character of various nations to present resolutions for the General Assembly of the United Nations. During the morning, delegates worked in three areas: war and arms control, human rights crises, and environmental issues. In the afternoon, they came together in the General Assembly to pass resolutions from the earlier sessions. Bowling Green High School, acting as the United States delegation, won top-team honors for the third year in a row. Second place was St. Charles Preparatory School from Columbus, Ohio. Coming in third was the second Bowling Green team, acting as Japan. Fourth and fifth places went to William Henry Harrison High School from Harrison, Ohio, and Tippecanoe High School from Tipp City, Ohio. Also participating were Keystone High School from LaGrange, Ohio, Fisher Catholic High School from Lancaster, Ohio, Upper Scioto High School, Antwerp High School, Horizon Science Academy from Columbus and Lima Senior High School. Faculty from the History, Politics, and Justice Department, and the Modern Languages Department served as judges for the competition, under the direction of Dr. Andy Ludanyi. Lisa Robeson, interim dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, presented awards to the top teams.
