What is an Ethics Bowl?

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 .
