Are there any technical requirements to attend the Model G20 Virtual Summit?
Students enrolled in the Model G20 Virtual Summit must have regular access to a computer with a reliable high-speed internet connection. Students are expected to log in to Knovva Academy’s platform and Zoom to attend online simulation sessions. If any sessions require students to have additional software, students will be notified of these requirements in advance.
Do I need native English language fluency to participate?
No. While native English speakers might find it easier to participate verbally, we have numerous channels to ensure that all voices are included.
Can I join the program if I don’t have Model G20 summit experience?
Yes, of course! The Model G20 Virtual Summit welcomes high school students from all around the world, even those without Model G20 Summit experience.
What is the cancellation policy?
The program fee is non-refundable once the application is complete.
How will the Model G20 summit impact my college application?
Participating in the Model G20 Virtual Summit will demonstrate to college admissions officers that you are committed to growing your leadership skills, developing your practical understanding of international affairs, and broadening your perspective as a global citizen. Knovva Academy students often attend top colleges and universities, and we attribute their success to their vibrant spirit of inquiry and their willingness to thoughtfully engage in Model G20 while keeping their grades high.
How is the Model G20 Virtual Summit different from the mG20 in Action Club?
Model G20 Virtual Summit participants spend six days engaged in a role-playing game via Zoom, while mG20 in Action club members meet once a week during the school year, and collaborate online using Knovva Academy’s community forum. Both activities include opportunities to learn, collaborate with peers, engage in hands-on simulations, and speak publicly.
How much does the MG20 Virtual summit cost?
The fee is $199 per student for the winter 2023 cohort. This fee covers all guest speakers and supports the teachers who facilitate each team.
