Welcome to Australia’s most prestigious high school Model UN competition: The Evatt Competition

The Evatt Trophy Competition engages high school students across Australia in world affairs and issues through debating mock Security Council resolutions from the position of an assigned country. In pairs, delegates will be assigned a country and one resolution a week prior to the competition. They will then develop their stance on the prepared resolution from the perspective of their assigned country. On the day of their round, they will debate, amend and finally vote on the prepared resolution and also one impromptu resolution.

The competition provides a forum for high school students to meet other like-minded students and develop their public speaking and negotiation skills. It fosters learning through a non-teaching environment and creates a positive and empowering experience for students who are interested in international relations, politics and world affairs.

The competition is open to students in years 9-12.

Evatt National Finals 2022

This year, Evatt National Finals (ENF) will take place in Melbourne, Victoria from the 28th of November to the 5th of December. This competition will see thirty teams from all over Australia come together to compete in a series of Model UN debates and learn from experts in the fields of international relations and global politics. At the end of the week, the team most effective at achieving their diplomatic goals in debate will be selected as the national champion and take home the Evatt Trophy.

In addition to the debates, participants will hear from local and global leaders through a series of speaker sessions, providing new ideas and perspectives on issues they discuss during debate.

Over 1000 delegates compete across Australia, with the 60 most successful selected to attend the Evatt National Finals. We are thrilled to be bringing such engaged and passionate young people together in Melbourne for a competition like no other.
