Amazing Win

United States Military Academy cadets attending the World Model United

Nations championship in Heidelberg, Germany, not only took

the gold medal, but won more awards than any team from any school has ever

attended a World Model UN conference. Competing against 850 students from 86

universities in 35 countries, twelve of thirteen West Point team members won

the World Model United Nations Award for Diplomacy in their committees. This

result is even more astonishing considering that the Cadets were role

playing as French and German UN delegates, an incredible handicap to

overcome.
