Several local high school students will be selected to serve in leadership positions for the 14th Annual Teton County Model United Nations Conference.

Applicants for these positions must be enrolled in a participating school, and should be highly respected at school and in the community.

-- Proficiency with MUN Rules of Procedure
-- Experience with Model UN (preferably Teton County Model UN)

-- Good standing in school and the community
-- Comfort and experience with public speaking
-- Ability to work collaboratively in a team with other student leaders and the conference organizers

--Students must be available for TCMUN training workshop in mid-August 2019

Personal Responsibility:

Each student is expected to take ownership of her or his participation in TCMUN and IC21 programs. This includes attending required meetings, appropriate and timely communication with other students, faculty, or IC21 staff, and being prepared for events. If you are unable to attend or participate in an event or meeting, it is each student’s responsibility to communication with IC21, not a student’s parents. If a student is overwhelmed or feeling overextended, it is the student’s obligation to reach out and communicate that to IC21 staff. IC21 considers open and direct dialog and feedback with students important for developing personal responsibility and honing of their leadership skills.

Applications for the student leader positions are due by Friday, April 19th, 2019, by noon. Current sophomores and juniors are encouraged to apply. If you are interested, please complete the application below.

Selection of participants will be based on:
