Sixteen Jackson Hole High School students took second place in the 30th annual Ivy League Model United Nations Conference at the University of Pennsylvania last week. According to a school district news release the students participated in four intense days of committee sessions, some of which having over 300 students participating, in an event that pitted students from 113 schools around the US and several foreign countries. However, the release says most of the teams came from small East Coast college-prep schools. Jackson’s team was only bested by Choate of Connecticut in the small schools division. This is one of the oldest and most prestigious UN Conferences held in the country.
