Model UN is a conference that involves high schoolers from all over the US and the world. Run by the University of Chicago, it is a simulation of the real UN with students participating in committees and writing resolutions. The conference runs for 4 days and is held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Chicago in early February.
In preparation for the conference we have weekly meetings on Monday mornings. Students write papers regarding topics relevant to the committees they have been assigned. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn the art of public speaking and debate while learning about the world and having fun!
