North American High School Model UN Delegation Awards

TJHSSTModel United Nations is not about the awards, however awards can be a great way for conferences to recognize teams for their diplomacy, knowledge of topics, debate skills, and leadership. High School Model United Nations in North America is very regional, and no two conferences are equal- while the University Circuits tend to be more centralized and standardized, every high school conference has different award metrics, different rules, different attendees, and sometimes even different awards. Because of this, it is almost impossible to properly rank High School teams, and this would contradict many of the educational objectives of High School Model United Nations. However, we would still like to recognize the delegation award winners from the biggest conferences in each region and nationally. At the end of the school year, we will release our annual Top 150 High School Model UN Teams list.

We’ve reached out to dozens of conferences so far and will continue to reach out to conferences throughout the year and continually update this page as conferences send us their delegation award info. If your North American conference of at least 400-500+ delegates is missing from this list, please tell us your delegation awards and we will update this list as soon as possible.
