Highland High School Boston Model UN Trip

My students need your support to attend the BOSMUN Model UN Conference!

My Students

In February, Highland High School's Model UN Program will be returning to Boston University's prestigious BOSMUN Conference for our sixth time. This campaign will cover lodging costs for the conference.

By helping to fund our Boston trip, you will become a part of a growing tradition in Highland that we are all very proud of.

The Highland Model UN Program was established in 2012.

In year one, we had twelve regular members attending meetings every Friday to discuss politics, human rights, and environmental issues. We learned parliamentary procedure, United Nations protocols, and competed in our first conference. Since then our membership has grown to over thirty students who are committed to make the world a better place.

In years past, members from our delegation have received several awards at BOSMUN including, outstanding delegate, best position paper, and numerous honorable mentions. At our last BOSMUN, we received 4 separate awards and had an incredibly rewarding learning experience. Our goal is to make experiences like this a reality for more of our students. This is where you come in!

My Project

Last year we spent most of our time in meetings, free-periods, after school, and on weekends, raising money. Through countless hours of work and the dedication of our entire club, we managed to raise nearly all of the money necessary for participating in the conference. We sold T-shirts, planned activities, sold candy bars, and held can shakes. It was time well-spent and money well-earned. But wouldn't it be nice if we could spend those hours learning about government? Practicing parliamentary procedure? Polishing our presentation style? Thinking about solutions for the myriad problems that face our world today? If we can raise the money necessary to participate in the conference through the power of social media, we can then focus our attention on preparing for the event. Further, we can harness our energy towards the scholarship, team work, and public speaking, that make Model UN such a vitally wonderful and beneficial activity.
