West Hempstead High School students welcomed peers from H. Frank Carey High School for the Model United Nations mock delegations on May 23.

Students debated the topic of the refugee situation as it applies to the European Union. Acting as delegates from countries such as France, the United Kingdom, the United States, China, Greece, Germany, Russia, Italy, Czech Republic and Poland, students delivered speeches in addition to drafting resolutions and offering solutions.

The entire session was student-run as seniors acted as moderators to keep on schedule and hold order during speeches and caucuses. The day ended with a closing of the conference and the presentation of awards to participants.

The Model UN of West Hempstead thanks their counterparts from Carey for taking part in this year’s delegations.
