Model United Nations

What is Model United Nations? 

Model United Nations is a foreign policy and diplomacy simulation where students (grades 9-12) represent a country, work with other students, and help draft resolutions that address the world's issues.  Students write a policy paper to explain their represented country's position on certain topics.
