WHSMUN 2019 Awards

***Our next WHSMUN will be Thursday, March 19 – Friday, March 20, 2020***

WHSMUN is a two-day conference offering high school students a rewarding and challenging opportunity to learn about foreign policy and gain experience in the skills of international diplomacy through simulations of real-world issues impacting individuals, families, and communities in member-states being discussed at the United Nations.

If you are experienced or have never participated in Model UN before, there is a place for you at WHSMUN!

General Conference Information:

The WHSMUN 2019 Delegate Agenda is a great way to see a brief snapshot of the conference.

General Assembly(GA) Main Committee and Special Council Background Guides:

Background guides will give a brief overview of the issue and some guiding questions to consider.  They are meant to be a starting place for delegates to begin their research but are by no means comprehensive and inclusive of all of the information on that particular issue.  This allows for great research skill building as well as the flexibility for addressing each issue generally and then specifically as it pertains to the country the delegates are representing.

Please click on special council guides to access the issues and background guides.

Position Papers:  The deadline for GA, and UNEA position papers to be considered for an award is March 1, 2019. The deadline for Special Council position papers is extended to March 8, 2019. Additionally to be considered for an award papers must be properly formatted as outlined in the below Position Paper Overview: Research and Writing Guide.
