Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Students use Parliamentary procedures to participate in mock- United Nation debates on real world problems. Model United Nations students are given a topic and a nation to represent and after completing researching for both, debate in class, seeking to further their nation's solutions and views.
Fort Campbell High School just recently went to a national conference at Vanderbilt University where five of our debaters won awards. At Vanderbilt in a futuristic USA debate I learned how to control a debate, how to make alliances out of allies and enemies, how to change failures into victories, and about the United States Nuclear Policy (our debate ended as US rebels detonated a nuclear bomb to which my debaters responded by having the US government issue a nuclear strike against the rebels).

Advice for students:
Model United Nations is without a doubt one of the best classes any student can take. Through invigorating debates, while learning about Parliamentary procedures, and the powers of the United Nations, MUN helps students to improve your public speaking, to think on your feet, to become a better researcher, and gain a new, humbling, world perspective.
