This is the UH Hilo report. News about people, events and programs at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo.
UH Hilo’s Model United Nations Team Hui Na Lahui Huipu turned in another strong performance at this year’s competition in New York. UH Hilo earned Honorable Mention, a third place award presented to teams placing in the top fifteen percent.
The event attracts teams from 300 universities and colleges worldwide, who work in conference settings to propose resolutions on issues ranging from regional conflicts to economic and social development. UH Hilo represented Hungary during the five intense days of simulated UN deliberations, which saw them present their country’s foreign policy positions on 24 different issues before 8 committees.
This team was very different from the group that captured the highest honor of Outstanding Delegation last year, as 12 of its 15 members were competing for the first time, which makes their achievement all the more remarkable.
