The student delegates participated in a variety of committees, including the General Assembly, Arab League, Security Council, Association of Southeast Asian Nations, several corporate committees, the International Press Delegation, and the Cabinets of South Korea, China, and the United States. Topics of the conference included nuclear proliferation, territorial disputes, space exploration, economic growth and stability, among many others. The conference also included a foreign affairs networking event where students had the opportunity to ask questions of consuls from Australia, Chile, Sweden and the Netherlands.
MHS students Charlotte Neumann, Ava Clark, and Monroe Durand received conference awards for their exceptional individual performance within their committees.
