22 Students from Northport High School participated in this year’s Model United Nations Conference at Hofstra University on March 13. Participants from thirteen high schools across Long Island took on the roles of different countries across six different committees. Students worked together to develop resolutions to address a myriad of issues, including the potential colonization of Mars, the treatment and placement of refugees, the future of the global oil market, agricultural development and food security in the developing world, and more.

Additionally, NHS students Katie Meadows and Nick Bertos received honorable mentions, and Isabella DeBrino was named “Outstanding Delegate” at the conference. Well done, students!

Advisors Mr. Jensen, Mrs. Moore, and Mr. Krahel commend all of this year’s participants for dedicating time and dedication towards developing a better understanding of global problems, and broadening their understanding of how diplomacy can be used to address such a wide range of issues.
