||UNA-USA National Essay Contest
||Since 1986, the National High School Essay Contest on the United Nations has inspired students to engage global issues and the work of the U.N. Each year, UNA-USA publishes a topic and question of particular importance to the international community. The purpose of the Essay Contest is not to summarize or evaluate the work of scholars, thinkers, government officials or authors. Instead, UNA-USA asks students to use these resources to structure their own arguments and reach their own conclusions.
