The UN Youth Evatt Competition is a Model UN Security Council competition for students in Years 9-12. It aims to educate young people about Australia’s place in the world and empower them as active citizens by developing negotiation, teamwork, public speaking, 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 resolutions from the perspective of the country they are assigned. Teams will be allocated one of the fifteen countries that are members of the United Nations Security Council in 2023. The students are judged, and the most effective diplomats proceed to the next round.
