Focused Research on the Resolution
During the month of January.
Determine your country’s positions on the Resolution and find support for that position (through empirical data, quotes from government leaders, and other research materials).
Drafting of Sponsored and Supporting Speeches
During the month of February.
State whether your country is in favor of or opposed to the various operative paragraphs of each Resolution. Explain why your country supports or opposes particular operative clauses of the Resolution, and if you oppose, recommend changes thereto. Advisers assist the students in revising and finalizing their speeches.
During the end of February and early March.
Practice your speeches as often as possible. Time your speech and delete or add content so that you do not exceed the maximum time for sponsoring speeches and supporting speeches (maximum length of a sponsoring speech and a supporting speech will be approximately 5 – 10 minutes. Final maximum time will be provided to advisors and students in late January). We will attempt to provide your team with a Rotary Club meeting venue to give your speech to a live audience before the MUN Conference.
Maximum length of a sponsoring speech and a supporting speech
Advisor guideline: Advisor must be available for all team meetings, scheduled orientation and MUN events. The advisor will work with the students nine weeks to prepare for the Conference.
