Dear Model United Nations Delegates:

 

We invite you to the 2019 Charger Model United Nations high school conference to be held at the University of New Haven in West Haven, Connecticut on Saturday, December 7, 2019.

 

Our last conference brought together over 150 students from 18 area high schools. 3 schools took home Outstanding Delegation award plaques for their collective work that exemplified everything that the UN stands for.

 

The conference will run simulations of 3 United Nations' committees, including the Security Council, and discuss a variety of current global topics. It will also include optional position papers for the opportunity to win outstanding position paper awards.

 

To sign up, please email your name, phone number, email, high school name, and an approximate number of student participants to: chargermun@gmail.com.

 

This is non-binding but will save your spot at ChargerMUN 2019. Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you soon!

 

Sincerely,

 

Liv Bissanti
