The Hudson River Group, consisting of students from Dutchess Community College and Vassar College, both located in Poughkeepsie, N. Y, were given the Distinguished Delegation Award and the Outstanding Position Papers Award at the National Model United Nations simulation held in New York City. More than 4,300 college students from 37 U.S. states and 23 other countries participated. Fifty-two percent of the delegates were from outside the U.S. The National Model United Nations program is sponsored by the National Collegiate Conference Association, which is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization that promotes understanding of international issues and the United Nations. National Model United Nations programs provide students with a better understanding of the inner working of the United Nations as they build skills in civics, diplomacy and compromise. Students take on different roles and are required to use effective communication skills to debate and then solve problems in conflicts, human rights, environmental and economic issues.
