About

Viking Model United Nations strives to deliver an accurate simulation of the United Nations for middle school students through research, writing, speech, and negotiation.

Model United Nations is a simulation of the United Nations and other multilateral bodies. In Model UN, students step into the shoes of ambassadors from UN Member States to debate current issues on the Organization's agenda. Student-delegates perform research, give speeches, write resolutions, and negotiate with allies and adversaries - all in the interest of mobilizing international cooperation to resolve problems that affect countries all over the world.

Before assuming their ambassadorial roles in a Model UN conference, delegates research the issue that their committee will address. Delegates learn how the international community acts on its concerns about various topics. Delegates also look closely at the needs, goals, and foreign policies of the countries they will represent. The insights they gain from their exploration of history, geography, culture, economics, and science contribute to the authenticity of the conference. The delegates' in-depth knowledge of their countries guarantees a lively and memorable experience.
