On November 10th 2012, twenty four North Carolina high school students took part in the fourth annual Model United Nations (MUN) training conference at Chapel Hill known as miniMUNCH. The Conference was sponsored by the West Triangle Chapter of the United Nations Association, the United Nations Organization (UNO) of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (UNC-CH), and the School of Education at UNC-CH.

mun_resolutionThe Conference simulated a UN Security Council debate on “The Civil War in Syria.”  Attendance was limited to high school students with no prior experience in MUN conferences. Students prepared in advance by researching the countries they represented during the simulation. Throughout the simulation they were coached by UNO students on such matters as parliamentary procedure, caucusing, and resolution writing.

The participating high school students are now prepared for  full-fledged formal MUN Conferences held at UNC-CH, Duke University, and elsewhere.
