IDIA presents

Franklin HS Model UN Conference 2021

Welcome to FHSMUNC!

FHSMUNC 2021 will take place on October 23rd, entirely online.

Now in it’s eleventh year, FHSMUNC is a partnership between Franklin High School in Somerset, NJ and IDIA. It is a great way for MUN newcomers and veterans alike to spend a day exercising their research, diplomacy, and writing skills. Designed to provide students the opportunity to continue their MUN experience even as the global pandemic limits large in-person events, FHSMUNC will take place entirely online and through IDIA’s virtual conference portal. 

Just like RUMUN and our other flagship programs, FHSMUNC will provide the same in-depth topic briefs, well-trained staff, and small committee sizes.

IDIA will use Zoom to facilitate the conference. Students will be able to connect with their chairs and fellow delegates through video, while still taking advantage of timed speaking sessions, digital note passing, and more. Like all IDIA events, FHSMUNC will be staffed by Rutgers undergraduate students, and will feature the same in-depth topic briefs that delegates have come to expect.
