The National and Regional High School Ethics Bowls are competitive yet collaborative events in which students discuss real-life ethical issues. In each round of competition, teams take turns analyzing cases about complex ethical dilemmas and responding to questions and comments from the other team and from a panel of judges. An ethics bowl differs from a debate competition in that students are not assigned opposing views; rather, they defend whichever position they think is correct, provide each other with constructive criticism, and win by demonstrating that they have thought rigorously and systematically about the cases and engaged respectfully and supportively with all participants.
The team for this year has been established. If you are interested in participating next year, contact Dr. Rhodes. The team meets every Tuesday and Thursday at 7:00 a.m. to practice.
The next Colorado High School Ethics Bowl competition will be on February 2, 2019 at CU Boulder.
