Harvard Model United Nations (HMUN) India took place in Hyderabad, in August 2014. It is considered to be one of the best school-level MUNs in the sub-continent. There were over 1200 delegates, from around 15 countries.
Cogito Minds had sent a delegation of 6 students to participate in this exciting and intense event. We were allotted 4 committees for our delegates (two double delegations) as the representatives of Azerbaijan: DISEC, SPECPOL, WHO and the Security Council. Our students put their noses to the grindstone for over 2 months, working hard to try and make an impact.
After 4 days of hardcore MUNning, an exhausted troupe was elated by a mind blowing performance. Cogito Minds MUN Club walked away from the conference with 5 awards:
2 OUTSTANDING DELEGATE AWARDS (Security Council)
3 HONORABLE MENTION AWARDS (DISEC and SPECPOL).
We were the only delegation from Pune to win any awards.
