Collaborative Discussions of Complex Ethical Dilemmas

The National High School Ethics Bowl (NHSEB) promotes respectful, supportive, and rigorous discussion of ethics among thousands of high school students nationwide. Each fall the NHSEB releases a set of cases covering a broad range of issues, which then serve as the focus for the year. Teams meet together regularly with a coach to research the cases, discuss the issues they raise, and identify clearly how they think those issues should be addressed. Wrapped around this work is a model for the competitions that rewards students for the depth of their thought, their ability to think carefully and analytically about complex issues, and the respect they show to the diverse perspectives of their peers. The Parr Center for Ethics, located at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is home and headquarters of the NHSEB, overseeing Regional Competitions and hosting the National Competition each April. The 2019–2020 NHSEB season will begin in early September with the release of the 2019–2020 Rules & Procedures, the Regional Case Set, and NHSEB online registration form for schools. The season will conclude on February 5, 2020. The 2020 Nationals will take place at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on April 17–19, 2020. If you would like to start a high school ethics bowl team or regional competition in your area, the NHSEB website provides helpful resources and other useful information.
