Model United Nations 

The Wiregrass Writing Project and the Southeast Alabama Regional Inservice Center at Troy University will host the Southeast Alabama Model United Nations Assembly (SAMUN), March 4 & 5, 2021. Students will have the opportunity to experience the United Nations first-hand. Each delegation, limited to 7 students, will represent a different nation and decide important issues that affect the world.

Native Dress

All delegates are expected to dress in native dress of their nation.

Nation’s Flag 

Each nation’s delegates shall make their own nation’s flag. The flag must be made out of fabric, foam or felt, and the dimensions are to be precisely 9 inches by 11 inches. The flag is to be attached to a stick that is 18 inches long. A holder should also be prepared that will enable the flag to sit on the desk of the nation’s delegation. NOTE: The flag will be used by all nations’ delegates to gain recognition in the General Assembly and will be used in the opening Roll Call of Nations.

Roll Call of Nations 

At the opening session, a roll call will be made of every nation present. One member of each nation’s delegation will give a 30-second welcome in the native tongue of the nation; a second delegate will interpret in English (more on this in the confirmation packet).

Number of Delegations 

The number of delegations will be limited to 40. Delegations must be accompanied by a teacher, but can also have parents assist the advisor.

All  deadlines will be strictly enforced to give teams adequate time to prepare for SAMUN.
