PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Pace University New York City students earned two of six awards distributed at the 2015 Oslo Model United Nations Conference (OsloMUN), in which 100 students participated in a three-day simulation of multi-lateral diplomacy in Norway, from Friday, Feb. 13 through Sunday, Feb. 15.

An additional student was recognized with an ‘honorable mention.’ Two Pace students were recognized for their excellence in the simulation of African Union debates about the International Criminal Court. Lindita Capric, who received a “Best Delegate” award for her representation of Ethiopia and Kyla Korvne, representing Nigeria, was recognized as a “Distinguished Delegate.”

Ten Pace students participated in the conference, representing a wide range of countries around the world. They were selected based on their excellence in previous national and international Model UN simulations. In the run-up to OsloMUN, they engaged in intensive research about their country, practiced public speaking and wrote a detailed paper outlining their countries’ position on key policy issues.
