Ethics Bowl competitors?

Westminster College in SLC will be hosting the Wasatch Front’s qualifying tournament for the national Ethics Bowl, and their director has kindly invited us to participate. I haven’t been involved with this before, but the idea is this. We are given some ethical cases to think through. At the local tournament, our team is asked probing questions about the cases, and we are assigned points depending on how well we respond. The winning team, I believe, advances to the national tournament, which will be at Indiana University.

So: are any students out there interested in being on our team? The Westminster tournament is November 13th. If so, leave a comment saying so to this post, or send me a note.

  1. I am extremely interested in participating in this Ethics bowl. I have a loving passion for philosophy, debating, and the consideration of morality.


  2. For those interested: we will be meeting each Wednesday in October, from 4 to 5 pm, in the Dean’s conference room, Main 340 (enter through M 338).


  3. one last thing: i know someone asked to see a scoring sheet, so here’s a link for one so you don’t have to dig around for it.

    the difference between team 1 and team 2’s scoring sheets is small – the team number, and the shape of the boxes in which the judge places the team’s score is either a square, or an octagon. that’s all, folks.
