The Evatt Competition


​The Evatt Competition (named after Herbert “Doc” Evatt, who

was an Australian High Court Justice and a leading Federal

politician who became President of the UN General Assembly

and helped draft the Universal Declaration of Human Rights) is a

Model United Nations Security Council diplomacy competition

where students are paired as teams and allocated a country.

They are then required to debate and vote on prepared

resolutions from the perspective of their nation. Connor and

Chloe progressed through the Sunshine Coast and Queensland

Semi-Finals to compete in the Queensland Grand Final held

in the Parliamentary Annex against 14 other ‘countries’. Whilst

they did not go on to the Nationals, they performed to an

exemplary standard.
