About this fundraiser

We are raising money for the Verona Area High School’s Model United Nations (VAHS MUN) team. VAHS MUN is an award-winning Model United Nations team ranked in the top 150 Model UN teams in the country and the only team from WI to receive this recognition.

Through participation in interactive simulations, our team provides students at VAHS with the opportunity to learn about the United Nations and world affairs, share their opinions with students from around the world, and become active global citizens. As a member of this team we learn the skills of public speaking, debate, research, writing, and building consensus.

On November 29th-December 2nd, 2018 our team will attend the Chicago International Model United Nations (CIMUN) conference and on February 7-10th, 2019 our team will attend the Model UN of the University of Chicago (MUNUC) in Chicago, IL. These conferences provide a unique chance for us to interact with ~4500 fellow Model UN delegates from around the world. We are excited about returning to CIMUN and MUNUC again this year after winning many awards last year. However, these trips will cost us about US$800 per student in travel, hotel, and conference costs to attend, an amount not all of our members can afford to pay. In order to allow us to participate, we are seeking your sponsorship.

In a globalized world, international education is critical to fostering today’s citizens and tomorrow’s leaders. With the opportunity to actively debate international problems and interact with fellow students from around the world, we believe that these conferences will be a uniquely valuable educational experience. Any support you could provide would be immensely appreciated.

Thank you so much!

Sincerely,

Lynn Vilker, VAHS MUN Advisor
Elyse Mancilla and Madelyn Vilker
Head Delegates, VAHS Model United Nations
