Description

Announcing the Second Annual Saint Ignatius Model United Nations Conference for Middle School Students: PACKMUN II!

The Saint Ignatius Model United Nations (SIMUN) team invites students in grades 6-8 to participate in a Model United Nations Conference on Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. No experience or preparation required.

The internationally recognized SIMUN team would like to offer middle school students the opportunity to engage in highly interactive diplomacy, negotiation, and leadership.

Students do not need any experience to participate. The committees and country positions will be assigned on the day of the conference. SIMUN students will chair each committee and help delegates with preparation.

Come and discover the excitement of international diplomacy!

Model United Nations is an activity that engages students in simulations of the work of the United Nations and other international organizations like NATO, the EU, and the African Union by representing countries, debating issues, and negotiating solutions to the most pressing problems of the day. Model United Nations conferences are hosted by high schools and universities throughout the United States and the world.

The SIMUN team has won numerous awards at conferences hosted by Columbia University, Georgetown University, Boston College, Northwestern University, the University of Pennsylvania, the College of William and Mary, the University of Illinois, Duke University, Florida International University, and the University of California at Berkeley. In addition, SIMUN has been named “Best Delegation” at international conferences held in St. Petersburg, Russia, Beijing, China, Oldenburg, Germany, and Alkmaar, Netherlands.

Participating students are asked to bring a tablet, laptop, or smartphone, if possible. Additional tech resources will be available if needed. A pizza lunch will be provided for all participants.
