Congratulations to the Riverview Model United Nations team for a fantastic showing during its first competitive conference of the 2020-21 school year!
The 16th annual University of Pittsburgh Model European Union was held virtually and with over 180 students from 15 schools across the region. While all conferences will be held virtually this year, the change in format did not deter the spirit of our team.
Our team of 19 delegates, received accolades from the conference judges with the team of judges saying “how impressed they were with (our) students.”
The Riverview team won a total of seven awards at the conference and was instrumental in the flow of discussion that took place in each committee room!
The students recognized for their performance at the conference are listed below:
Eleni Wyrick – First Place Best Delegate for Denmark in Room 3
Taylor Billet and Alexis Allis – First Place Position Paper for Denmark in Room 4
Lauren Hornsby and Alanna Wachocki – Second Place Outstanding Delegation for Italy in Room 4
