The NYC High School Ethics Bowl promotes respectful, supportive, and in-depth discussion of ethics among high school students. By engaging high school students in intensive ethical inquiry, the Ethics Bowl fosters constructive dialogue and furthers the next generation’s ability to make sound ethical decisions. The collaborative model of the High School Ethics Bowl rewards students for the depth of their thought, their ability to think carefully and analytically about complex issues, and the respect they show to the diverse perspectives of their peers. As a result, it enables students to practice and build the virtues central to democratic citizenship, thus preparing them to navigate challenging moral issues in a rigorous, systematic, and open-minded way.
