Organized by the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics (APPE), the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl (IEB) allows students across the USA and Canada a hands-on approach to engaging with major ethical dilemmas and challenges affecting a range of professions, disciplines, and aspects of daily life.
Ethics Bowl topics range from socio-cultural interpretations of the letter of the law, to proposed social engineering solutions to recurring issues affecting modern society.
According to APPE, participating students are judged on their ability to:
Understand the facts of the case,
Articulate the ethical principles involved in the case,
Present an effective argument on how the case should be resolved, and
Respond effectively to challenges put forth by the opposing team as well as the panel of expert judges.
SunHawk Consulting, LLC. is committed to empowering professional and community-level engagement in key discussions regarding compliance and ethics, and as such is proud to contribute to this year's Central States Regional Ethics Bowl.
The judging rubric for regional Ethics Bowl events centers on the participating team's level of clarity, intelligibility, and deliberative thoughtfulness, as well as their level of success in identifying and discussing the central moral dimensions of the case in question.
The Ethics Bowl was founded as an intercollegiate competition in 1995, "developed by faculty at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago." Since 1999, Marian University has hosted the Central States Regional Ethics Bowl annually, and is a qualifying site for the National-level competition (Source).
The Twenty-third Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl Competition will be held in Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday and Sunday March 2-3, 2019.
