We will have a short time on the day of the event to go over the Ethics Bowl format and answer any last-minute questions. You will be provided with all the documents you need at the bowl, but you will find it helpful to familiarize yourself with them in advance.

  • Scoring Criteria: This explains the qualitative meaning of the numerical scores you will enter on the score sheet.
  • Score Sheet: This is the score sheet you will be given for each match.
  • 2023-2024 Regional Cases: We will use the following 10 cases from this set to use on the day of the competition, but there will only be a single question for each case which often will not be the same as the listed study questions.  You are not required to do any research or have any prior familiarity with the cases, but you will find it helpful to briefly read through them in advance. In the round you’ll have 3 minutes to read each case while the assigned team is preparing their initial presentation.
