Middle School Ethics Bowl
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.
- Six real-world cases and questions.
- The 2023 Case Set is now available!
- Presentation and open dialogue structure
- Judged by ethicists and educators
