YMUN Day 4: Hotchkiss Wins Best Large Delegation! Plus Interview with Secretary-General

by Ryan on January 23, 2011

The Yale Model United Nations Conference just wrapped up! Congratulations to the Hotchkiss School for winning Best Large Delegation! The Lawrenceville School won Best Small Delegation and Outstanding Delegation awards went to White Station High School and Concord Academy.

I had a chance to catch up with Secretary-General Kevin Hoffman after closing ceremonies. Check out my interview:

It looks like all the delegates, advisors, and staff had a lot of fun! I certainly enjoyed starting a commercial faceoff between the CNN and Fox News joint crisis committees.

Congratulations to Kevin and the YMUN Secretariat for putting on a successful conference and thank you for letting me visit!

    Great conference at YMUN all around. My students from Trumbull High School not only enjoyed the extensive debates in the committees, but also the bits of fun that the Yale staff provided like the Ice Cream Social and the Dance.

    it’s a shame that the committees couldn’t have shown the Fox News and CNN commercials during their meetings – they all had laptops with sound. That way, students could then spread the word about the commercial faceoff and really get some votes and attention to their work. Just an idea for next year!

    Thank you again for a great conference – THS Model UN Club will be back next year!

      I’m glad to hear your students had a good time! And that would have been a great idea for the commercial faceoff! You should blog next year’s YMUN =P
