Model UN takes on Academic Worldquest

Kylee Schecter

SBRHS’ very own Model UN (MUN) club took on the challenge of Academic WorldQuest by participating in the international relations trivia competition hosted by WorldBoston at Bridgewater State University on March 5. The Academic WorldQuest competition consisted of 10 topics including “Where Climate and Migration Meet,” “Afghanistan: End of the 20-Year U.S.- Led Intervention,” “Human-Centered Agenda to the Future of Work,” “CDC and the Global Health Agenda,” “Technology and Democracy: Threat or Promise,” “21st Century Money: Dollars to Digital Currencies,” “Working for Peace through Legacies of War: The Case of Vietnam,” “Insecurity of China’s Neighborhood,” “Current Events,” and “Great Decisions.” You can learn more about these topics and what they consist of here: Academic WorldQuest 2021-2022 Study Guide. Each of these topics included ten questions that participants had to answer using their own knowledge and what they learned from their studying. If you are interested in taking part in next year’s Academic WorldQuest, consider joining MUN so you have the chance to participate (Benefits of Participating in Academic WorldQuest) ! SBRHS sent five teams to Academic WorldQuest with the following students participating: Sydney Dufresne, Emily Mckenna, Abbie O’brien, Aidan Montag, Breannah Mckeon, Zachary Dauphin, Lara Nohra, Sophia Rocha, Mackenzie Shea, Lexi Avelar, Andrea Santos, Madison Fisher, Anthony Almeida, Tyler Barros, Ema Mello, Jack Hansen, Kylee Schecter, Julia Costa, Lilly Medeiros, and Lily Botelho. Though these teams unfortunately did not place high enough to participate in the national WorldQuest competition in Washington D.C., participants recount the experience as thought-provoking and fun. SBRHS’ MUN club would like to congratulate the team from the Boston Latin School on their victory and wish them luck on the national level!
