Vikings Crowned Best Large Delegation at Central Texas MUN

From Friday, November 5 to Sunday, November 7, 2021, The Village High School Model United Nations team traveled to the University of Texas at Austin for the Fall Central Texas MUN conference. The VHSMUN team has a reputation of consistently emerging as the Best Large Delegation, and this year, vikings did not fail to impress once again. From Indian revolutionaries to nuclear warfare to Napoleonic wars, not only did delegates embrace a global mindset in their committees but they also had a blast on the trip. 


“I would describe my first trip as surreal really,” said junior Joao Borges, a new delegate on VHSMUN. “I wasn’t expecting it to go that well. I thought I would be extremely unprepared for it and I was extremely nervous, but once I got there it was really easy to speak and voice my opinions in my committee. My favorite part of the trip was getting to know so many people from different schools, as well as a lot of people from Village. I got to make a lot of new friends and feel like I belonged in the club. I learned so much about both myself and about MUN and I don’t think it could have gone any better.”


The team ended their trip with 11 overall awards: 1 best delegate award, 3 honorable mentions, 4 outstanding delegate awards, and 3 best position paper awards. Given that this year 80% of the VHSMUN team consists of novice delegates, Viking diplomats have proven that they are unstoppable anywhere and any day.
