This year, AIM Academy has 9 students participating in the Jr. Model UN diplomat program. The Model UN program in Philadelphia has over 35 middle schools involved and half a million middle and high students participate each year around the country. Students have two cultural diplomacy conferences this year held at The Fox School of Business at Temple University. They focused on international affairs and cultural diplomacy surrounding the assigned country of Greece. Students are broken up into groups to tackle the issues of ending forced labor and providing clean and affordable energy for all. Each conference comes with an emphasis on building diplomatic skills, expanding knowledge of world geography, cultures, and political structures, as well as increasing understanding of how national and international institutions tackle key issues.

The team displayed exemplary teamwork, maturity, and knowledge throughout the event. As a result of their incredible work, the team took home a second-place red ribbon. It was an incredible event celebrating the love of reading with approximately 20 schools at the competition and 6,000 students competing throughout Montgomery County.
