Represent Victoria at Australia’s premier debating and diplomacy competition.
The Evatt Competition places students in the shoes of UN Security Council nations to debate on issues of international security, human rights and current affairs. Students from Years 9 to 12 compete in teams of two from their own school with the aim of passing a resolution which suits the interests of their state. Successful teams from the preliminary rounds will progress to the state final, with the winners going on to represent Victoria at the annual Evatt National Final.

Who is Evatt for?
Evatt is open to all Victorian students in Years 9 to 12 who have an interest in, or would like to learn more about, contemporary global affairs. No prior experience with debating, public speaking or Model United Nations is required to take part – some of our most successful teams have entered the competition this way!
