COMMITTEE DESCRIPTION

In the Press Corps, delegates are transformed into reporters. Instead of forming resolutions, we have the difficult but rewarding task of capturing all of the other committees and events at conference. Delegates do receive country assignments, but instead of representing that country in the material that Press Corps produces, it is used as a starting point to learn how to report. The delegate acts as though he or she is a reporter in that country, spreading the news of an event that happened there. At conference, we sit in on debates and cases, which allows us to write summaries to share with others who were unable to see the real thing, including delegates from the other committees and parents back home. We also take footage to preserve the memory of conference to have for years to come, and to promote Y-MUN to potential new delegates. With video, written, and social media teams, we divide and conquer to get the scoop on the various debates, resolutions, and activities occurring within the walls of Hershey.
