Philadelphia Regional High School Ethics Bowl

The second annual Philadelphia Regional High School Ethics Bowl (PRHSEB) will take place at Villanova University on Saturday, December 7, 2013, starting at 7:30 a.m. We anticipate that 14 teams will participate.

Here is a short video from a high school ethics bowl, including additional information about the origins of ethics bowl.

Students can find a video here of Villanova professors, going over three cases from the 2012 competition. This will give students an idea of the intellectual tenor of the ethics bowl.

Coaches can access a video here produced in June 2012 when Villanova professors conducted a training session. Be attentive to the changes to the ethics bowl competition noted in this memo that may clash with what is said in the training. Where there are differences between the video and this memo, the memo is the authoritative source of information.
