We came to school one day and our teacher said that she thought it would be interesting for us to learn about the United Nations. She told us that we could learn about any country in the world that was a member of the United Nations. We thought that was cool and so we started researching. The next thing you know, she is telling us that she entered us into a program for a Model United Nations program and we were chosen!
This is the first one ever done for elementary age students. We were the only ones chosen from Alaska and one of only 25 schools to participate in North America. This was all very exciting, but none of us knew how we would pay for a trip to the REAL United Nations in New York City. Our parents, teachers, and school staff told us not to worry. They told us that if we worked really hard, studied our countries, learned about the U.N. process, wrote position papers and resolutions, and practiced formal and informal debate, that they would find a way for us to go and learn to be delegates to the UN. We have done our part and so did they. Thanks to the adults who have supported us in this goal, we are headed to the UN!
So we would like to thank all of the very special people and businesses that donated and helped out with the Auction Fundraiser and Raffle that we had on Feb. 3. We have learned much more about our own community and the pleasures of living here as we have studied the world and world issues. We know now that we will come back from New York and be able to be Ambassadors of Peace right here in Alaska.
