The Connetquot High School Model United Nations Club recently hosted 14 schools from across Long Island and Queens to take part in the 2018 Model United Nations Regional Conference.

Throughout the course of the day, participants simulated the structure and function of the United Nations. Each student-delegate was assigned to represent a sovereign nation, placed on a committee to discuss important current world topics and concerns, and asked to make recommendations. In a mock setting, the student-delegates tackled current world issues, created world peace, and solved problems that are meant to protect and improve the lives of individuals around the world.  

“This was one of the largest Model U.N. conferences to date,” said Connetquot High School Model United Nations Club adviser Jennifer Bay. “We had almost 300 people attended, which included delegates, conference staff, chaperones, volunteers and school advisers.”
