Model NATO Challenge

The Model NATO Challenge will take place at Virginia Wesleyan University, as part of the Norfolk NATO Festival, on Wednesday, March 17. The Model NATO Challenge is a scholarship competition in which the top 30 high school applicants along with six alternates are chosen to participate in a mock global-crisis simulation, confronting issues facing today’s NATO Alliance. Student diplomats are chosen to represent each of the NATO Member Nations and must work together to address a crisis scenario such as piracy, immigration, or another issue that faces the NATO Alliance today. Diplomats are assigned mentors—military officers from each of the countries—who assist in preparing them for the challenge while teaching about the country's culture, national military resources, and political backgrounds. Based on their leadership and diplomacy skills, the top three finalists are awarded scholarships. Pursuant to CDC Guidelines for COVID-19, this scholarship program is currently proceeding in person with all necessary safety precautions. If unable to safely gather physically for the program’s scheduled dates, it will proceed in a virtual format.
