Virtual Model United Nations Conferences (VMUNC)
Welcome to the Best Delegate Virtual Model United Nations Conferences (VMUNC)!
VMUNC is a reimagined series of one-day virtual Model UN conferences throughout the school year meant to encourage students to learn and practice their public speaking, debate, negotiation, and team leadership skills. Students will represent different countries or world leaders and will be challenged to work with others to solve real world issues.
We invite Faculty Advisors, Students, and Parents to read below to learn more about the MUN Training Conferences, the MUN Invitationals, and the MUN Tournament of Champions. VMUNC has committees for high school students (ages 14-18) and middle school students (ages 11-13).
Once a club has decided which conferences they want to attend, every advisor must register (at no cost) and every delegate must register and pay individually. Click the link below to register! Register by November 15th to attend the December conferences!
