It's not too late to donate! We strongly believe that money should not be a barrier preventing ALL students from experiencing amazing leadership opportunities like Ohio Model United Nations (OMUN) . We hope you can show your support of that belief by contributing what you can to help defer the cost of the balance for our little team.
Do you know someone who is passionate about STEM education and providing youth leadership opportunities for ALL students? Then consider contributing in their name for the holidays!
We were the only student-inited, grass roots team who made it to OMUN in Columbus, Ohio this year! The cost for our team to attend the amazing 3-day summit was $1850 ($250 per student and $100 team fee) which included registration, materials, meals, and 2 nights at the hotel. We seven seniors and juniors used our project-based learning, student leadership, and world citizenship skills that we have developed at our school, Dayton Regional STEM School to create and compete as the first DRSS team. We spent all year researching and developing our resolution on behalf of the little-known people of Sahrawi .
We are grateful for the Ohio Leadership Institute for putting on the extremely well-run event that benefitted over 1000 students from all over Ohio! We are also grateful to our parents, family, and friends who have contributed what they could to make OMUN financially possible for us...But we still need about one-third of the funds to pay for our team.
Thank you for supporting us, and thank you for ***sharing***!
OMUN is an event held by The Ohio Leadership Institute in Columbus, Ohio.
The Ohio Model United Nations is a three-day global education simulation experience that allows students in grades 5-12 to learn about the complete operations of the United Nations and its role as the world’s largest international peacekeeping and humanitarian organization. Through the process of role-playing, students become delegates of a selected nation in order to write, present and debate issues affecting the nations and peoples of the world. Additionally, students present culturally based talent, participate in global education contests and debate current issues from the agenda of the United Nations.
