The Evatt Trophy Competition engages high school students 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 from all over the Perth metropolitan and outer metropolitan suburbs, as well as regional areas. Watch this space for the Delegate Handbook, which will have all the info you need to know, even if you’ve never done Evatt before!
