IDIA presents

Franklin HS Model UN Conference 2020

Welcome to FHSMUNC!

FHSMUNC 2020 will take place on November 21st, entirely online.

Now in it’s tenth 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 has partnered with Classrooms.Cloud to create a fully-featured event portal where 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.

Unlike most IDIA conferences, FHSMUNC will take place through our virtual conference portal. The system is based on Zoom and outfitted with helpful MUN-specific features including a speaking timer and direct messaging system. 

All participants will need a free Zoom account and high-speed internet access to participate. Delegates should test their Zoom setup prior to the conference to ensure it is working properly.

After registering for FHSMUNC, advisors will be provided with information regarding how delegates can log in to their committee room.

The conference will take place on Saturday, November 21, 2020. The precise sessions schedule is TBA and will be posted here when available.

As an IDIA-sponsored conference, IDIA adheres to a uniform set of rules governing participant conduct, debate style, and awards. Additionally, IDIA has adopted special protocols for this online conference. Note that all usual conduct policies remain in effect, where applicable. Please see detailed policy documents below, and email info@idia.net with any questions.

FHSMUNC costs $15 per student. An invoice will be generated and emailed to you once you complete pre-registration and final registration for the conference on idia.net. There will be no refunds after Nov 10, 2020, should you need to drop numbers or cancel.

All payments can be mailed to PO Box 387, New Brunswick, NJ 08903.
