Application Link for Model UN

Below, you will find the link to the online application to join the WMS Model UN club. Please read the application carefully and be aware that there is an essay requirement this year. You cannot save your work on this application, so if your do not complete it in one sitting, all of your work will be lost. You can view the application ahead of time, in order to know what information you will be asked to provide. Then, come back to it when you have everything prepared and ready to submit. We highly recommend that you draft your essay on a Word doc first, and then copy and paste it into the online application.   The deadline to apply is midnight on Sunday, September 18 (note date change). The application is a lengthy process, including the submission of a 400-word essay, so be sure you give yourself ample time to complete it.

For OMUN, teams (country groups) are limited to 6-8 people. The country choices that are available this year are listed on the application.
