The Thant-Evatt Trophy Competition

The Thant-Evatt Trophy Competition (formerly the Thant Trophy Competition) is the Victorian round of the Evatt Trophy Competition. Evatt is a national Security Council debating competition for senior high school students who, in teams of two, represent one of the 15 member states of the United Nations Security Council in debates on resolutions conducted like the real UN Security Council.

Thant-Evatt is currently the largest model of the UN of its kind in the southern hemisphere with several hundred people competing each year. The Thant-Evatt competition is held between July and September with the Evatt National Finals held in December; in 2012 they will be in Brisbane and Victoria has the opportunity to send 5 teams along!
