Ethics Bowl

Ethics Bowl logoThe 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 2,500 high school students will participate in 2016 with the aim that they ultimately deepen their understanding and appreciation of interesting ethical and philosophical issues.

The Marc Sanders Foundation provides prizes for the top four teams. The two winning student teams and two semi-finalists, as determined by the Ethics Bowl Executive Committee, will each receive a $4000 award.
