CCWA braced the cold at the North American Model United Nations conference (NAMUN) in Toronto. NAMUN boasts the title of Canada’s oldest university-level Model United Nations conference, though for CCWA-ers, this conference was a first. Delegates faced many challenges in committee, and worked hard to address crises such as election fraud, Communist uprisings, assassination attempts, and more, in addition to the real life crisis of driving home through a New York blizzard and 75 mph wind. The team also enjoyed the Harry Potter-esque architecture of the University of Toronto’s campus, and exploring metropolitan Toronto- the 4th largest city in North America.
The team ended the weekend triumphantly taking home the award for Best Small Delegation as well as several individual awards: Kathleen Fink was awarded Honorable Mention for her representation of the United Kingdom in DISEC, Anthony Perrins received the award for Outstanding Delegate for his position as Iraq in the UN Security Council, Yazan Anani was awarded Best Delegate for his performance in the National Provisional Ruling Council, and Piper Womelsdorf received the award for Best Delegate in the America 2024 United States Senate.
We are so proud of everyone who joined us for CCWA’s first time at NAMUN, and are looking forward to adding this conference to our repertoire. See you next year, Toronto!
-Piper Womelsdorf, Head Delegate
