Club Spotlight: Winchester Model UN Club



This month’s club spotlight is on the school’s Model United Nations Club! Model UN is about simulating the UN through debating prevalent global issues and writing resolutions to help solve them. In addition to biweekly meetings, the club attends overnight conferences. HMUN and BosMUN are held in downtown Boston every year, and NHSMUN is held in Midtown Manhattan, New York City.
