The Model UN team won 1st place at the 5th annual Pennsylvania High School Model UN Championship held at Penn State University on November 3-5. This marks the 5th consecutive year that Mt. Lebanon Model UN has won the 1st Place team award at Penn State for top high school.
Ten of our students won individual awards (1st, 2nd, 3rd) in their committees. The students who won top honors were Seniors Max King, Marley Howell, Conner Alexander, Anne Jin, Grace Brown and Elizabeth DePastino. In addition, Junior Rebecca Schwartz and Sophomores Daniel McNulty, Zoe Thorpe and Antonio Carapella also were award winners in their committees.
Over 20 high schools from across the state competed at the Penn State Model UN tournament. This was the first tournament of the year for our students. Upcoming tournaments this year include the Model European Union, Duquesne, Delaware, Carnegie-Mellon and Ohio State. Coaches Adam Lumish, Pete DiNardo and George Savarese are enormously proud of their students.
