Model United Nations Conference 2023 - CANCELED


Register for NWACC's in-person High School Model United Nations Conference to engage with other high school students and learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations (UN). You'll have the opportunity to role-play different countries among UN committees and sharpen your skills in public speaking, debating, writing, critical thinking and team work. 

Conference committees include the Economic and Social Council, Human Rights Council, Security Council, and (novel) General Assembly. The conference director will assign committee chairs. The (novel) General Assembly is for students who are new to Model UN and want to be placed in a committee with only novices. This committee consists of experienced college Model UN participants who offer special assistance and guidance to novices on parliamentary procedure, resolution-writing, international organizations and national interest. 

Delegates should conduct themselves by parliamentary procedures while in committees, advance their country's interests on the policy topic, and convince the committee to pass a resolution addressing the policy. Position papers are encouraged but not required in preparation for the tournament.

Award nomination forms will be emailed to high school model united nations advisors. Nominations will be taken from delegates and advisors. Awards will be mailed to best delegation and honorable mention from each committee.
