Lab Model UN students kicked off their year with the sixth annual Lab Model UN Conference Sept. 22. Hosting the event precludes any U-High delegates from placing, but new team members still participate in the conferences to gain experience in a real committee.

“We are even more excited about the performance of our freshmen this year in their respective committees,” Jamal Nimer, one of the secretaries-general of the U-High team, said. “Their performance was exceptionally strong, and I’m excited to see how they’ll do for the rest of the year.”

Two of the more competitive teams that typically attend this conference, Lyons Township and Glenbrook South high schools, were not able to attend the conference. Even without these schools, the event still had the highest number of schools in its history, with a record breaking 10 schools.

The team will compete next at the Vanderbilt University Model UN conference in Nashville Nov. 2-4.
