Ethics Bowl

The Marc Sanders Foundation is proud to be a sponsor of the National High School Ethics Bowl, an event organized by the Parr Center for Ethics at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

The Ethics Bowl is a competitive event in which high school teams analyze a series of wide-ranging ethical dilemmas. Responses are judged according to the quality of a team’s reasoning and how well team members present their case, analyze the morally relevant features of the case, and anticipate and preemptively respond to commentary and questions. Over 4,000 high school students participate annually with the aim that they ultimately deepen their understanding and appreciation of interesting ethical and philosophical issues. Visit the National High School Ethics Bowl website to see how you can start a team at your local high school.
