BE PART OF THE RINI ETHICS BOWL TEAM Rhode Island High School Ethics Bowl

he Rhode Island High School Ethics Bowl is an annual competition in which high school students from around the state come together to discuss ethical questions. The event is hosted by Brown University with support from the Department of Philosophy and the Center for Ethical Inquiry.

In the Ethics Bowl students are encouraged to express and develop their own ethical commitments through a careful consideration of all relevant points of view. Unlike traditional debate competitions, the goal is not to defeat your opponent by overwhelming them with arguments for your side. Instead, Ethics Bowl scoring rewards collaborative discussion, engagement with conflicting viewpoints, and generous acknowledgement of objections.

In addition, participating students have the opportunity to meet with Brown graduate students and professors who serve as philosophy mentors.

MEETINGS – After school Wednesdays 3-4pm KICK-OFF Event & Practice Day AT BROWN Nov 16th ETHICS BOWL DATE – January 26th
See Ms. Jewell for more details.
