Junior United Nations Assembly (JUNA)

  • JUNA is a model United Nations assembly for students in grades 6-8 representing schools across the state of Alabama.  Teams of students represent a nation of their choosing, research it to determine a issue of global importance, and write a resolution explaining the problem and a solution. The team members design and create a costume representative of their country, in addition to creating a display board which represents the culture, people and experiences of their chosen country.

    JUNA 2019 was held at Birmingham Southern on January 31- February 1st,, a two-day extravaganza of ideas, costumes, debating, problem solving and critical thinking.  Each year, JUNA of Alabama is an unforgettable experience  in diplomacy, strategy, and public speaking.
