About the Competitions

Do you or your students live in a regional area and want to get involved in UN Youth but can’t make it to Sydney? Well if you can’t make it to UN Youth, UN Youth can make it to you! From the 17th-21st of July we will be embarking on a road trip visiting regional hubs to engage with the brilliant regional students of NSW.

Evatt

Evatt NSW is the state round of Australia’s premier debating and diplomacy competition.

Evatt is a Model United Nations Security Council diplomacy competition for students in Years 9-12. More than 2,000 students compete in Evatt each year.

Evatt aims to educate young people about Australia’s place in the world and empower them as active citizens by developing public speaking, negotiation, teamwork, research, and diplomatic skills.

The competition takes the form of a mock session of the UN Security Council. Teams of two students debate, amend, and vote on a prepared resolution from the perspective of their assigned nation. The students judged the most effective diplomats proceed to the next round.
