Over 30 LFA students recently attended the Model United Nations of the University of Chicago conference. Over 3,000 local high school students attended the four-day conference, where students were in session from 9 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. 

LFA had committee members representing Italy, Maldives, and Ghana; as well as participating in committees that simulated the creation of the 2011 Icelandic constitution, the Cabinet of Manmohan Sighn of India, and the Historical General Assembly of 1991. The students had been meeting and preparing for these committees since mid-October.

The LFA delegates received positive feedback across the board, and students Madison Rosen ‘25 and Saige Chaseley ‘25 were awarded the Verbal Commendation Award for their work representing Ghana in the Organization of African Unity.

This year’s conference was the first in-person event since February 2020, with 2023 marking the conference’s 35th anniversary - LFA has participated in all 35 years.
