This is the UH Hilo report. News about people, events and programs at the University of Hawai'i at Hilo.
UH Hilo’s Model United Nations Team Hui Na Lahui Huipu turned in another strong performance at this year’s National Model United Nations conference in New York. UH Hilo earned Honorable Mention, a third place award presented to teams placing in the top fifteen percent.
The event attracts more than 5,000 students worldwide,who work in conference settings to propose resolutions on issues ranging from regional conflicts to economic and social development. This year, UH Hilo represented Greece
during the five intense days of simulated UN deliberations.
This team was very different from the groups in previous years, as one of the two members competed for the first time and the other served as a staff member for the first time at the National Model United Nations conference, which makes their achievement all the more remarkable.
