MASON CITY – Students with the Mason City High School attended the Iowa High School Model United Nations (IHSMUN) Spring Conference held on the University of Northern Iowa campus held April 16-17, 2015. Students attending this conference modeled the procedure of the United Nations in New York City with some slight modifications to format. Students worked with their peers to draft resolution on topics of international importance, used the opinions and viewpoints of member nations of the United Nations to draft position papers, debated with their fellow delegates, and collaboratively constructed a final resolution.
Mason City High School had eight students attend the conference along with MCHS Model UN Advisor Kimberly Metcalf (MCHS Social Studies Instructor) and Matthew Jensen (Mason City level Model UN conference. Sawyer Goetz and Tristan Bernhard were awarded Outstanding Delegates (Disarmament and Security Council respectively) and Randy Davenport and Derek Tate were awarded Outstanding Papers.
