MASON CITY, Iowa - Dozens of high school students gathed at the North Iowa Area Community College as they aim to make a difference as members of the United Nations.

The Model U.N. conference was held at the Mus-Norris Conference Center where students collaborated and debated on real-world topics.

Once all members were in agreement, they composed a position paper to send to the state level with hopes of ultimately reaching the United Nations.

One groups main concern is the crisis in Yemen and they are seeking ways to create a positive change in the lives of the impacted citizens there.

"We're talking about the people there - what they're dealing with, and what what they're having to go through, " said Rylee Krowioyz. "There's lots of children that are dying because of diseases that are easily preventable.

""We're creating amendments and stuff, giving some background information on what happened, and we also gave some amendments on ways to possibly fix it," says Wyatt Grady.

Model U.N. is an extra-curricular activity open to all students in participating schools.
