Model UN at Bay Middle School

Model UN at Bay Middle School
Bay High School Model United Nations' club members, sophomore Kaia Atzberger and senior Maggie Williams, organized and led a full-day conference for Bay Middle School students on Friday, April 20, focusing on economic equality for women. It was the middle school's first-ever Model United Nations conference.
The conference was in response to increased interest among middle school students, an interest fueled by rising interest in global events. Also, the conference was also designed to ignite and feed interest among BMS students as they prepare themselves to head up to Bay High.

Typically, incoming BHS freshmen don't get up to speed with Model UN -- understanding protocols, processes, learn how to write papers, engaged with other students about geopolitical issues -- until deep into their sophomore year. Engaging students early, and helping to familiarize the middle school students with all this now, gives them a good running start to a faster and more rewarding club experience when they land at the high school!
Participating BMS students are Jack Oster (who won the Chairman's coveted "Gavel Award" as the the most outstanding participant), Miya Debolt, Aidan Stojic, Daniel McNamara and Joey Hinshaw. David Adams is the Bay High Model UN parent adviser.
