Model United Nations Continues to Dominate


Model UN

While most students went home to their fami-lies for the celebration of Thanksgiving week in 2012, 33 Chico State students traveled to Seattle to compete in the Model United Na-tions. In addition to the Distinguished Delega-tion award, the students garnered 14 out of 30 possible individual awards. While the 33 CSU, Chico students represented a little more than 10 percent of all students attending from 17 universities, they took nearly 50 percent of all awards presented. 

The Distinguished Delegation award went to CSU, Chico students representing the United States, Indonesia, Ukraine, Togo, Egypt, Qatar, Sudan, Hungary, Gabon, Vietnam, Uruguay, and Lebanon. In addition to the overall delega-tion award, Garrett Mathis, Ariana Munoz, Emily Parker, Laura Napoliello, Nigel Bocanegra-Speed, and Bert Haro received Position Paper awards for their pre-conference research. Emily Parker, Adam Graves, Bert Haro, and Kristina Houchin received the Out-standing Delegate Awards; Laura Napoliello, Ali Blake, Michael Andreas and Jack Haugen received Distinguished Delegate awards for their representation of their countries. 

“These student officers are the heart of the program,” said Professor John Crosby, who teaches the political science course that pre-pares students to complete. “They are the rea-son for the amazing performance and Chico State’s continual success. For every student recognized by the conference staff, there were several unrecognized that put forth extraordi-nary efforts to continue the stellar reputation of Chico State at these events. Every member of the team worked diligently and produced impressive results.”
