The discussion was held in the auditorium of the Plainview Old Bethpage public library where the students debated the topics for forty five minutes followed by a fifteen minute question and answer period. After the students were finished answering questions, Amy Frushour Kelly, coordinator of CFI Long Island programs, presented the students with the "Inquiry Award."
