December 2, 2020- Collinsville High School students Caroline Lentz and Claudia Delacruz were recognized for their performance in the November 28, 2020 CIVITAS STL Model United Nations online session.
CHS Model UN sponsor Barbara Lindauer announced the two won for their resolution “Police Misconduct in Hong Kong.” Lentz and Delacuz represented the United States delegation. CIVITAS STL Model UN explains its mission as follows:
“Under the banner of the United Nations students are encouraged to immerse themselves in the politics, cultures, and problems of the 193 member nations. They research, write resolutions, and serve as delegates during sessions that showcase what they’ve learned about solving the world’s problems. During this time most students see that to make a difference everyone has to work together to get things done, whether it be curing AIDs, extreme poverty, or climate change. Compromise has always been and will always be the keystone to peace and the Civitas United Nations program tries to both promote and model this approach.”
This year, due the COVID-19 public health crisis, Model UN was held via Zoom. The next session is Saturday, December 5.
