Cranberry Chronicles staff report
On Monday, April 15, Cranberry students attended the 11th annual Westminster United Nations Conference.
Cranberry High School students represented one delegation. However, their delegation was split into two different countries: United Kingdom Delegation (U.K.) and Equatorial Guinea Delegation (E.G.). Students worked to solve the created crisis from the viewpoint of these countries.
Preparation for this event required each student to research his/her roles and write a position paper on their topics which had to be submitted prior to the conference.
Cranberry, as its own delegation, included several subcommittees.
Of note, Kaia Dean and River Perry were awarded an honorable mention for their work as delegates for Equatorial Guinea in the World Health Organization.
