Delegate Tools

 

Preparing to Represent Your Country 

To prepare for the conference, delegates must read and follow the instructions in the following documents.  In addition, we recommend printing the starred (*) items and bringing them to the conference in a notebook along with your position paper and the topic guide for your committee.


It is not necessary to make a country placard this year because the conference will be online.

Writing and Submitting Your Position Paper

For highest award consideration, 2020 position papers were due by 11:59 pm on Wednesday, 11/4 (deadline extended from 11/2).  The submission form remained open after that.  We continued to read papers and consider them for awards until at least 11/8.  Between 11/9 and the opening ceremony on 11/13, students simply received credit for submitting papers, which is required for country team and school awards.  We encourage all students to submit a paper before the conference. 

Position Paper Submission Instructions

  1. Each student must submit his/her position paper to his/her assigned committee (instructions coming soon).
  2. The title of your file must include the delegate's country, committee, and high school in the following format: Country_Committee_School. (Example: Iran_GA-1_Bozeman).
  3. The position paper should be submitted as a Word document (please do not submit documents in Pages, as our staff may be unable to view it). The text should only contain the position paper. Do not include a cover letter or other information.
  4. Only delegates who submit position papers before the conference begins are eligible for awards. This includes team awards.
  5. If you have questions, please email mtmodelun@gmail.com

Position Paper Submission Form

***Students:  click here to submit your paper.***  Each student should submit their own paper.  To do so, you will create an account with a password, complete a form with your contact information so we can contact you about awards, and upload your position paper.  If you need assistance, please email Jessica Shaffer.
