Model UN Conference

On Thursday November 7th Lake Shore’s Model United Nations team participated at the annual Model UN Conference at Canisius College.  The event hosts over 20 area high schools and close to 400 delegates.  This year senior Madison Ald was awarded First Place for Best Journalist.  Madison was a member of The Press Corps: a new committee this year where students act as journalists, visiting each UN committee in session, and writing short articles based on their observations.  At the end of the conference, a newsletter is created. Madison received the award by proving to be a self-starter with a passion for journalism and sharing knowledge with other.  Madison demonstrated preparation in understanding the various topics covered, and a strength in writing and analytic skills.  Well done and congratulations!
