Model UN Tournament Academy by All-American Model United Nations
July 16 – July 22, 2023, hosted at American University
The Model UN Tournament Academy propels students into five uniquely designed committees to test and strengthen their overall Model UN aptitude.
The 1st Annual Model UN Tournament
All-American Model UN has created a new, dynamic Model UN Academy for 2023: The Model UN Tournament. Fifteen students will compete in five uniquely designed simulations. Points will be awarded to delegates each day for their performance in committee. At the conclusion of the week, students with the most points will win prizes, including full tuition for the US travel team or international travel team.

Mentors with over 50 years of combined Model UN experience
All-American Model UN has been working with high school students since 2011. It all started with the first team of 12 students that All-American Model UN coached and traveled with to Asia’s largest Model UN conference in Beijing, China.
Through our Summer Academies, we bring our award-winning curriculum and training to student leaders looking to bring their Model UN skills to the next level.
The cornerstone of our approach lies with individual attention. Each day, we work with every student one-on-one to ensure maximum results.

Individual Attention & Feedback
Every student who attends an All-American Model UN Academy receives one-on-one feedback and coaching every day. All-American Model UN has the smallest student-to-staff ratio for Model UN summer programs. Students complete our Academies equipped with tools, tactics, and strategies that are guaranteed to improve performance.
Most of our students either are in student leadership positions or assume leadership roles within a year of completing All-American Model UN Academies. Our programs stress four key components of leadership: emotional intelligence, pattern recognition, preparation, and advocacy.
Proven Track Record
All-American Model UN has been coaching students since 2011. Our teams have won Best Delegation in 98% of the conferences we have participated in, with 90% of our students winning individual accolades. We have represented the US at conferences in Europe, Latin America, and Asia. Our US travel team is considered one of the country’s best teams. We practice what we teach.
My school couldn’t give me much support to excel in Model UN. All-American Model UN was an incredibly important part of high school. I competed at national conferences hosted by colleges like Georgetown, Cornell, and the University of Pennsylvania and won awards at almost all of these conferences. My Model UN experience was central to my college applications, and I look forward to continuing my Model UN journey at the University of Chicago next year!
