The AmeriMUNC VI Press Corps


Reporters, grab a notepad, a pen, and a camera. A new world order is dawning, and you hold the power of what the world will and won’t know. The old powers of the 20th Century are weakened, resentment is growing towards the United States, and Venezuela is slowing collapsing before our very eyes. The upcoming conflict between the new and old powers casts a shadow over the world like a skyscraper on a city at dusk. Whether you’re reporting on behalf of the New York Times, Al-Jazeera, or Folha de S. Paulo, the world’s information is at your fingers. Choose what you report carefully. It could change the world forever.


Position Papers/Pre-Conference Editorial

In lieu of a position paper, all delegates in Press Corps are required to write and submit an editorial one week prior to AmeriMUNC VII. Select one of the background guides from another AmeriMUNC committee and write an article on that committee’s topic from the perspective of your assigned news media organization. Be sure to take into account the audience and biases of your news organization. Your paper should be a minimum of one full page, double spaced, in size 12 Times New Roman font. At the top of the page, include your name, school name, news organization, committee, and topic.

The deadline for editorial submissions will be Friday, January 25th, 2020 at 11:59 PM EST. Editorials should be emailed to your Editor in Chief. The Editor in Chief will take the quality of the pre-conference editorials into account when deciding awards.
