Lausanne Model UN Students Bring Home Multiple Awards From Conference

Our students consistently strive to be knowledgeable communicators, whether it be in the classroom or beyond the walls of Lausanne, and when given the opportunity to represent the school, our students always aim for the best.

Lausanne Model UN club members recently tested their knowledge and debate skills in a battle against 25 different schools and 650 delegates during the South Eastern High School Model United Nations Conference.

Model United Nations is a B club at Lausanne that travels to two conferences a year. To prepare for the conferences, students are assigned countries that they have to prepare three positions and three resolution papers for, and are given the opportunity to argue their assigned positions during the competitions.

Lausanne won five awards at the conference. Within these awards, Matthew Russell ’19 won Best Delegate in General Committee, which is an advanced committee, and he wrote 33 position papers, totaling more than 16,000 words and 48 pages.

“Lausanne saw great success in new and old delegates alike, and has a bright future in upcoming conferences,” said Lausanne Model UN member Jai Sharma ’19.

Lausanne award recipients:

  • Matthew Russell ‘19 - Winner of Best Delegate in General Committee (GenCo)
  • Jai Sharma ‘19- Winner of Honorable Mention for Best Delegate in the Security Council (SecCo)
