    Naples, Florida 34109-2006

    Can YOU donate your Money or TIME?

    NCWA has been told numerous times that our Model UN is considered the Cadillac of competitions in Florida because we provide our NCWA members to act as judges instead of high school students being judges by other students, and secondly because we provide awards in the form of scholarships.

    Model UN Judges:

    We are ALWAYS looking for judges to help us with Model UN. Your responsibilities will include coming to a 1hour orientation in February, and then donating two full days (March 8th and 9th) to be at our Model UN hosted by Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU.)

    No experience is necessary. The reward of watching high school student participants is both enriching and rewarding. It will renew your faith in young people. If you think you might be interested in more information about becoming a Model UN judge, please contact Mo Winograd at mowinograd973@gmail.com

    Model UN Donations:

    The opportunity to be able to help a college bound student with scholarship funds is always an honor.  These are funds awarded to students who have worked long and hard in Model UN competitions throughout their high school years to accumulate the points needed to earn these scholarship awards.

    Any donation of $1500 or more entitles you to have a scholarship awarded in your name. The top scholarships are those who contribute the most dollars. Following is the list of NCWA members that donated scholarships this past year.

    $3,000                       Awarded by the Naples Council on World Affiars

    $2,250                       Mimi Gregory Scholarship

    $2,250                       George Gotschall Memorial Scholarship
