Benjamin Logan High School recently sent five teams to the Ohio Model United Nations held at the Hyatt Regency Convention Center in Columbus.
OMUN is a mock United Nations experience that allows students to become delegates of a selected nation in order to write, present, and debate issues affecting the nations and peoples of the world. Benjamin Logan teams represented the countries of Portugal, Lesotho, Cuba, Sweden, and Japan.
All teams presented resolutions at the Sunday evening council sessions and two of those resolutions were selected to move on to Monday's presentations. Team Portugal received recognition for their Outstanding Resolution. The students on team Portugal were Daniel Meier, Jack Robinson, Colin Headings, Chris Watson, Michaela Wasson, and Lily LeVan.
The Benjamin Logan teams of Portugal and Sweden both had resolutions selected to move on to the next level.
Highlighting the weekend were special awards presented for outstanding participation. Andy Griffith was selected to receive an Outstanding Delegate award and Kessie Rose received the Outstanding Leader award. Kessie was also the runner-up in the World Citizenship contest.
