32nd-Annual Contra Costa County Model United Nations Conference

The 32nd-Annual Contra Costa County Model United National Conference will be held on Saturday, November 5, 2022 at 9 a.m. The event, will once again be held virtually.  This academic event is produced and directed by CCCOE and coordinated by Best Delegate. The day-long event enhances high school students’ understanding of the United Nations and its role in global issues. Participating students (delegates) each represent a nation and negotiate on that country’s behalf. Registration deadline to participate in this year's Model UN is Friday, October 14.

Along with learning about the organization and world issues, Model UN is an excellent opportunity for students to display all the hard work and preparation they have put in, as they successfully discuss, persuade, and work with fellow committee members on real-world problems and complex international relations. The skills they are currently refining with this program, such as research and presentation, will be the same ones they’ll use in college and/or in their future careers.

This academic event also offers students an opportunity to gain substantive knowledge about the cultures and policies of the countries they represent. They can learn the mechanisms for peaceful resolution of disputes, while at the same time honing their interpersonal skills. They must practice writing and speaking skills in order to persuade delegates from other attending schools.
