    Williamson County Schools students got a first-hand look at government operations through the Model United Nations (MUN) Conferences in November.

    During the conferences, middle and high school students were divided into groups representing various countries. They drafted resolutions and debated a variety of international topics.

    "The Model United Nations program gives students the opportunity to work with peers to propose creative solutions to real-world problems," said Grassland Middle School librarian Susan Oldham. "Students gain experience with research, public speaking and collaborative teamwork while gaining a better understanding of global issues. It is so much fun to see them learning about our world and how they can make a difference."

    Three teams from Williamson County high schools were invited to the MUN 2021 Showcase: a Franklin High team, a Nolensville High team and a Ravenwood High team. This is the highest honor students can earn.

    Students could also be named Outstanding Delegates or be recognized for an Outstanding Resolution. Additionally, they could receive awards from the conference's International Court of Justice.

    The students who were recognized at the conferences are listed below by school:
