It’s award season in Hollywood– the Golden Globe, the SAG Awards, the Grammys, and the Oscars all taking place in the first quarter of the year– and it got us thinking, why isn’t there an award to recognize the hard work and dedication of the Model UN community?
Introducing the Model United Nations National Achievement Awards– the MUNNYs!
We’re designing the MUNNYs as a way to celebrate our communities achievements over the past year, and we hope to make it an annual tradition. Categories will recognize teachers, students, conferences, chairs, and secretariat members. Nominations will be open on the All-American website for a multi-week period, followed by a period of voting on finalists.
MUNNY award winners will be chosen half by popular vote and half by All-American staff.
