Athens College Junior High was represented by ten 8th and 9th grade students who were coached by their MUN Advisor, Ms. Martha Iliadou. Representing the Kingdom of Norway, Andreas Papanastasiou, the Ambassador of our School’s mission, participated in GA1 on the “Disarmament and International Security Committee.” The other students who  participated were:  Evaggelia Konstantoulaki on the “Economic and Financial Committee” in GA2, Iosif Koropoulis on the “Social Humanitarian and Cultural Committee” in GA3, Fragkiskos-Emmanuil Kefalogiannis on the “Special Political and Decolonization Committee” in GA4, Aggeliki Dapsi on the “Historical Security Council”  (HSC2001), Ariadne Michalou on the “Economic and Social Council” (ECOSOC), Georgia Papaioannou and Mara Mprafa on the “Environmental Commission” (EC), Niki Xanthopoulou-Sisini on the “Special Conference on Conflict Resolution in a Changing World” (SPECON), and Anastasia Tamviskou on the Youth Assembly.   The Ambassador of Athens College Junior High’s mission distinguished himself for his overall performance and was awarded an "Honorable Mention.”

Each MUN conference is a truly unique experience as students from around the world have an opportunity to represent a specific UN member-state and to research particular issues, such as human rights, education, as well as national and international relations.  At the same time, they play the role of ambassadors, form alliances, argue their viewpoints, and prepare resolutions.
