2014 MHS delegates at the Model United Nation in Chicago  


Delegates of Model United Nations XXV, welcome! During your participation in Mundelein's Model United Nations club, you will be representing a country and attempting to resolve some of its most pressing issues. This mock-conference is sponsored by the University of Chicago, who bring together student activist from across the country once a year to focus on dissecting conflicts that the real United Nations face. Each school represents one or a few countries, and is split up into the committees that the chosen country belongs to. Through the utilization of your best negotiation, persuasion, and debating skills, you will collaborate with other countries to produce a solution to the issue in your country's best interest.


A group of 110 high schools from 17 states and 4 countries travel to the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago, IL to debate issues of global importance. Students gain the privilege to discuss foreign affairs with children from different corners of the Earth, as well as to learn techniques towards building their negotiation and public speaking skills.
 
Mundelein High School has represented the following countries since the first Model United Nations in 2010:

Mali
Chad
Belgium
Mauritius
The Democratic Republic of the Congo
Cypress
Libya
Guinea-Bissau

And served on the following committees:

African Union
Economic and Financial
International Atomic Energy Agency
Disarmament & International Security
Security Council
UNICEF
World Conference on Women
World Health Organization

Nothing is more satisfying than helping to develop a solution to peacefully solve major world problems. And nothing is more fun than doing just that in a swanky hotel, stationed in Chicago's Loop, making new friends and gaining knowledge of our World's current affairs.

If you are interested in joining our club, please contact the Model UN sponsor,  Mrs. Darcy, at sdarcy@d120.org in room A014, or Taylor Miller, organizational vice president, at hopewashere56@yahoo.com. Thank you!

For Model UN's fourth year at Mundelein, we're changing some things. One of them is the employment of a new organizational system. Being used to help the delegates better compile their research, thoughts, and country's issue is the use of an ordinary 3-ringed binder. The following is recommended to be included in the binder to further help delegates to organize their thoughts:
- Background research on their country
a. statistics and facts
b. major past issues

- Background research on their issue
a. past attempts at resolving issues & who's been in charge of them
b. your own plans and ideas

- Folders & notebook paper

- Anything else mentioned by either Mrs. Darcy or Mr. Hirshman
