Middle School Ethics Bowl

The MS Ethics Bowl Team in 2023 with Bowl Advisor.

Modeled after the National High School Ethics Bowl, the Middle School Ethics Bowl aims to teach students how to think through ethical issues together.

The Middle School Ethics Bowl provides an opportunity for teams of students to collaboratively yet rigorously analyze and discuss both timeless and timely ethical dilemmas. The event brings together students from differing backgrounds and communities who wish to explore the best answers to life's most meaningful questions. It rewards open-mindedness, curiosity, humility, and mutual respect. REGISTRATION WILL OPEN OCTOBER 2023!

Volunteers: Registration will open in October!

Note: training videos, guides and Q&A board are available to registered volunteers on our online learning platform.
