The National High School Ethics Bowl is an event that “encourages critical thinking, civil discourse, collaboration and teamwork and a competition of ideas.”
About the Ethics Bowl
The Ethics Institute at Kent Place School collaborates with the KPS Upper School to provide coaching, resources and logistics support for teams of KPS students participating in the National High School Ethics Bowl.
The National High School Ethics Bowl is headquartered at the Parr Center for Ethics at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, which hosts the National Finals of the tournament annually. The Bowl is inspired by the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl, a college-level ethics bowl operating nationwide since 1996.
The Ethics Institute at Kent Place School is a first-of-its-kind Institute at the primary and secondary school levels. We believe promoting the process and practice of ethical thinking and ethical decision-making in the youngest of children prepares them to be the most effective leaders and compassionate citizens of tomorrow.
