BENEFITING: FLORIDA HIGH SCHOOL MODEL UNITED NATIONS INC
Florida High Schools Model United Nations (FHSMUN) was established in 1980 when students and professors from the University of South Florida (USF) convened the first conference in Tallahassee. Over the past 30+ years, FHSMUN has grown into one of the most well-respected and largest high school Model UN organizations in the southeast because of the extraordinary commitment of the Staff, the Board of Directors, and universities and community organizations. FHSMUN’s focus has always been its educational mission and the Staff and Board of Directors remain firmly committed to that vital educational mission. FHSMUN is a unique organization for two fundamental reasons. First, it holds a variety of Model UN conferences throughout the state, serving both middle and high school students. Secondly, the educational mission guides all of the decisions and processes for the organization. Attending schools come from all parts of the state of Florida, and have included schools from across the United States and international schools from Europe, Asia, and Central America. Our staff also represents our international nature, with members coming from across the United States and from overseas to work at our conferences. We are looking to continue our organizational growth and expand into offering conferences for other age groups.
