The Washington Area Model United Nations Conference (WAMUNC) is a four day exercise in diplomacy, international affairs, and global knowledge. WAMUNC prides itself on being one of the premier high school Model United Nations conferences in the world. WAMUNC's uniqueness lies in its high quality simulations as well as its geographic location in the heart of the American capital. WAMUNC is located just outside Washington, D.C. and fully staffed and sponsored by The George Washington University. 

Over the conference’s four days, WAMUNC provides educational experiences through its committee simulations. Further, WAMUNC’s location in the nation’s capital allows delegates to experience briefings, lectures, and speeches from leading professionals in related fields.Whether delegates are Model UN veterans or completely new to the MUN scene, they will find that this conference will challenge their diplomatic skills, increase their knowledge of the subjects debated, and enrich their understanding of the world.
