Riverview students earned some awards for their participation in a United Nations conference at Westminster College on Wednesday.

The Riverview Model United Nations team of 26 competed against 14 area school districts in the competition aimed at finding solutions to human rights, political and economic issues in the world.

Earning awards for the team were Sydney Reyes, Emily Pietragallo, Jake Glasser, Seth Merryman, Ben Brumbaugh, Jake Shoop and Forrest Steele. The conference brought the team's awards to 21 for the school year, said Kenneth Kubistek, Riverview teacher and Model UN sponsor.

The conference at Westminster College was the final time that the team's five seniors will compete togther, Kubistek said.

“I would like to publicly thank our seniors for their years of dedication and leadership,” he said.

The team will end the season by attending the Cornell University Model UN conference on April 19-22.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
