It is suggested that all delegates go over the conference rules prior to the start of the conference to make everyone’s VYMUN experience most enjoyable. A pdf of the rules for General and Specialized committees is available here for the delegates’ revision. Crisis committee rules differ between committees; a general committee rules and conduct guide can be found here.
At VYMUN, our principle focus is to educate delegates about how a Model UN functions without the pressure of larger, less intimate, conferences. That being said, we do give awards to commend certain delegates for their performance in both research and committee sessions. We do not want the goal of delegates attending VYMUN to be receiving an award, but rather to learn something new about Model UN and global affairs while having fun meeting new people.
For each Committee we give the following awards:
Best Topic Paper, Best Delegate, Outstanding Delegate, Honorable Mentions
