Trinity Hall’s Model UN Team Recognized for Outstanding Work at PhilMUN Conference

On Friday, February 24, Trinity Hall’s Model United Nations team returned to Philadelphia for the weekend-long Philadelphia Model United Nations conference for the first time since 2020. The PhilMUN conference hosts high schools from around Pennsylvania and New Jersey to gather for a simulation of a United Nations General Assembly. This year, the focus of the conference was Exploring Development Through Diplomacy in Africa. A group of 13 Trinity Hall students, along with faculty advisor Gina Jadelis and chaperone Christine Facer, traveled to Philadelphia for the weekend to represent the countries of El Salvador and Mali and deliberate with fellow high school students about global issues.
The Trinity Hall team broke up into smaller groups to tackle issues relating to El Salvador and Mali, and spoke on different committees and agencies such as the Commision on the Status of Women, the World Health Organization, the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime, and the Social and Humanitarian Committee. On each of the committees, Trinity Hall students presented their country’s perspective on the topic, debated members of different countries and collaborated on resolutions with others on their committees. The conference allowed the students to practice their presentation and delegation skills, work collaboratively with their classmates and peers, learn more about global issues and the process of addressing them in the UN, and expand their global citizenship. 
On the last day of conference, the Trinity Hall Model UN team was recognized with awards for their excellent work throughout the weekend. Grace Chizsar ‘25 and Leah Krampert ‘25 were awarded Most Improved for the Social and Humanitarian Committee. Annabel Sparano ‘26 was given the award for Distinguished Delegate for the Office of Drugs and Crime. Overall, the Trinity Hall Model UN team won the award for Outstanding Small Delegation. It was a successful and fulfilling weekend for the team! 
Faculty advisor Gina Jadelis said, “The biggest win of the weekend was seeing the excitement about being back at a MUN conference. It’s a great opportunity for our girls to connect with students from other high schools, discuss global issues and use their public presentation skills. I’m very proud of how the girls presented themselves and represented Trinity Hall.”
