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.

  • Moderator Script: This is very detailed script, showing you exactly what to say and do at each point. Exact wording isn’t mandatory, of course, but some of it is quite specific so please make sure what you say is accurate and that no precious time is wasted.
  • Composite Score Report: Once judges have completed their score sheets, you will have them write their total score for each team and their vote for the winning team, as determined by your score totals. The winning team is the one that gets the most judge’s votes.
  • 2023-2024 NHSEB 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.
