CROSS RIVER, N.Y. -- Approximately 200 student delegates recently participated in John Jay High School's second annual Model UN Conference.

The delegates from 13 Westchester County high schools discussed global and historical issues on Nov. 14 and were split into seven committees under the categories of General Assembly, Specialized and Crisis.

Students prepared by researching their assigned countries and topics such as the Russian Revolution and a special meeting of Fortune 500 company chief executive officers.

State Assemblyman David Buchwald delivered a special keynote speech.

The conference culminated with a closing ceremony and presentation of gavel awards to seven students for their performances.
