High school students from across the area participated in the Model United Nations conference at Fort Hays State University on Nov. 15. The event was coordinated and sponsored by the FHSU Model U.N. team.
Model U.N. is a competition in which students act as members of countries in the United Nations and play out international political scenarios.
