On Saturday, April 15, 2017, the Waubonsie Model UN team competed at the Glenbrook South High School Model UN Conference. There were over 200 student delegates representing more than 15 high schools. At this conference, WVHS students represented the member states of the United Nations and debated international issues. The simulations involved delegations of students who work with one another in their respective committees to produce mock resolutions on global issues. The students must employ diplomacy, critical thinking and global problem solving to be successful.
