Based on the United Nations, this program is designed to allow students to explore the inner workings of international problem-solving, cooperation, and debate. The program is open to all students with a teacher's recommendation. Students will refine their researching skills on various countries and complete a written resolution on current topics important to our world. Both serious and humorous topics are used as a basis for lively debates. Our year will culminate at the Tri-MUN conference in Collinsville; a two-day event where students may receive awards for resolutions and debates.
This year students who join Model UN are required to have a Teacher Recommendation letter. You will find the blank letter attached here.
