National Dress

Student delegates are encouraged to dress in the ‘national costume’ of the country they represent or a costume that accurately depicts their country. This adds colour to the day’s activities and immerses students in the experience.


Trophies are awarded to the first three teams. A trophy is also awarded for the best national costume. All participants will be awarded a certificate of participation.

There is a special award in recognition of the best debating team, the ‘Linda McLean Memorial PEACE Resolution’. This award is in memory of Linda McLean, a Central Coast resident who was a lifelong advocate for peace and youth.

The team judged the ‘Best on the Day’ in the general debate are invited to go to Canberra to debate against teams from around Australia at National MUNA. The national event is usually held in August or September.

Countries for Selection

Schools are to choose from a prescribed list of countries. Choices are assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis, so putting forward at least 3 preferences is encouraged.

Please see the COUNTRIES page for the complete list.

Resources for Resolutions

As outlined above, participating students will debate resolutions similar to those put forward at the UN and will represent their designated country's attitudes towards those resolutions. This list of useful links will assist in orienting participants with the UN's history and procedures.
