Model UN Conference

Model UN Conference

Connetquot High School’s Model United Nations Club recently showcased their skills and talents when they hosted 300 high school students from Long Island and New York City for the 2017 Model UN Conference.

 “The hard work and dedication that these students have shown throughout the year is awe-inspiring,” said club advisor Jennifer Bay. “The effort they put in to tackle current events and world issues is inspirational, and gives me hope for our world’s future.”  

As part of their participation in the program, Model UN members are able to step into the shoes of ambassadors representing their nations at the UN in Manhattan.  During the conference, students debate current issues, prepare draft resolutions, plot strategy and negotiate with supporters and adversaries.
