Representing a variety of countries, high school students - "delegates" - will sit in on General Assembly committees, Security Council, Economic and Social Council, International Press Delegation, and International Court of Justice.

By simulating these key activities, students will explore a wide range of current global issues such as international conflicts, terrorism, nuclear weapons, HIV/AIDS, human rights, the population, poverty, trade, energy, globalization, and the environment. Participants will prepare draft resolutions, negotiate, and build consensus with allies and adversaries.

Conference Participation Cost
• Per Delegate Fee: $100 per delegate (No charge for faculty advisors).
• Scholarships available. Call Vickie Logan at 563-333-6166 or email LoganVickieA@sau.edu for more information.
