The Department of Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock hosts the Arkansas High School Ethics Bowl. The champion team of the Arkansas High School Ethics Bowl advances to compete in the National High School Ethics Bowl.
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Claire Katz (Texas A&M University). We are currently recruiting teams; more info will be available later in the semester.
Differing from long established debate competitions, the Ethics Bowl is a venue that encourages collaborative engagement in serious moral discourse. Teams consider and discuss cases drawn from current events, which range from social and political issues, to environmental concerns, to professional worries, to issues arising in the classroom. Emphasis is on reasoning and the ability to engage in civil, rational discourse rather than on persuasion. Find out more about the Ethics Bowl on the National Bowl website .
