MUN team battles against 70 teams and emerges victorious

A delegation from Epsom representing Sweden was named Outstanding Delegation at the Reigate MUN; MUN terminology for winning the conference. The accolade was achieved against stiff competition from 70 teams, and marks a significant achievement for the College.

As the first and largest one-day conference in the UK, victory at Reigate MUN effectively signals Epsom’s arrival at top table, with the other participating schools running highly-regarded MUN programmes across the UK.

This achievement cannot be understated, with Nara Aligulova (Cr) and Emily Vandrau (R) both being named Outstanding Delegate in their respective committees.

Emily was additionally named Outstanding Delegate in the elite Security Council. This is MUN terminology for the best delegate at the conference (of some 200 delegates in attendance).

Again, in the Swedish delegation, Caroline Lansdown (Wh) was named Highly Commended Delegate; another excellent achievement from within the Epsom team.

Elsewhere, we took two novice delegations, representing Ecuador and Hungary. Among these, Ebube Akojie (Wh) managed to pass several amendments in her committee: a major achievement for her first conference.

In total, 12 pupils and students attended; these were:

Representing Ecuador

  • Anna Demenok (Wh)
  • Jay Doshi (Fa)
  • Alex Povey (Rn)
  • John Wu (G)


Representing Hungary
