Application deadline extended to February 19th!  And now open to jr high students, too!
 
District 6440 Rotary Clubs are asked to help identify high school and jr. high candidates to participate in a Rotary-UN Model Conference.  This will be held in Chicago on Saturday, June 2, 2018, in conjunction with the Rotary International Presidential Peacebuilding Conference focusing on Education and Literacy.  The event will be at the South Shore Cultural Center, 7059 S. South Shore Drive.  There is no charge for participation, and an allowance may be made for transportation.
 
PLEASE HELP US IDENTIFY CANDIDATES FROM DISTRICT 6440!  
 
Student teams of three delegates from the same school, supported by an Advisor, will represent a country from the UN's membership.  In total, fifty-seven delegations will discuss and vote on resolutions related to education and peace.  As ambassadors of a country, students will research the political, economic, educational, and cultural aspects of that nation in order to develop a position on the resolutions, and to sponsor, support, or oppose them. Delegates will be given training in peaceful conflict resolution, diplomatic negotiating, analytical thinking, and speaking skills.
 
Schools in Rotary Zones 28-29 can propose up to five teams, and while members of Interact Clubs are strongly encouraged to apply, any high school student can be nominated.  Preference will be given to students and schools where opportunities to participate in a Model UN Day are limited.  Each team must have an Advisor (supporting one or multiple teams), who attends the conference and may be a Rotarian, teacher, or other interested member of the community. 
 
THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS THE END OF JANUARY, 2018.
