What is a position paper, and do I need to write one? A position paper is a piece of prose that addresses a nation's perspectives on the topics discussed in committee. Position papers typically consist of three main parts: background information (illuminates why your country has a vested interest in the topic), facts and policy (nation's official policies towards the topic and any facts that supports your perspective), and potential solutions. For all committees, position papers are necessary to be considered for awards (specific instructions can be found in the individual chair letters). How should I dress for the conference? Delegates are required to dress in formal attire for the conference; if you were to present before the UN, what would you wear?
Chair letters are uploaded and can be found here! Press Corp update: Starting from Hilton 2016, all Press Corp articles can be found here!

"The main reasons that I do Model United Nations are to increase my public speaking skills and increase my exposure to international news and different cultures around the world. Whether it is speaking in front of a large crowd, talking about the problems in the world with your friends and/or family, or simply meeting people from around the world in the future, MUN provides skills that will last a lifetime and are unparalleled in other high school/college extracurricular activities." -Jacob Harron, chair of UNDP.
