Model UN Competitions

UN logo

Model UN participants compete in Model UN conferences with teams from other schools. Preparing for competition involves research and role-playing. Students become ambassadors of specific countries by presenting position papers on their country's policy preferences, caucusing, negotiating, and consensus-building with others to solve global problems. Of particular interest to students is the National Model UN Conference, held annually in New York. Participants at this conference spend part of the conference at the United Nations headquarters and meet with UN diplomats from the US and other countries.
