Congratulations to the School Without Walls Model United Nations Team, which won the coveted Best Small Delegation award at the April 3 Washington Area Model U.N. Conference (WAMUNC).

Two Walls students, Jack Nugent (’17) and Montana Lee (’18), won Best Delegate in their respective committees, akin to first place. Furthermore, Nico Stauffer-Mason (’16), Gunter Przystawik (’18), and Saskia Daugherty (’19) won second place Outstanding Delegate awards, and six delegates — Sam O’Sullivan (’18), Dev Bhojwani (’18), Ella Weiner (’18), Eliza Zizka (’18), Eli Kukla (’18), and Christian Robles (’19) — won third place Honorable Mentions. What a great way to end the Model U.N. season for the school year!
