Western Australian Evatt Competition

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.

The Evatt Competition takes the form of a Model United Nations (MUN) debate simulating a session in the UN Security Council chamber.

In teams of two, 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 vote on the prepared resolution, as well as one impromptu resolution.

The competition provides a forum for high school students to meet other like-minded peers 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 across WA.
