The University of Baltimore's Hoffberger Center for Professional Ethics will host the 2018 Maryland High School Ethics Bowl competition on Saturday, Feb. 3 beginning at 9 a.m. in the William H. Thumel Sr. Business Center (home of UB's Merrick School of Business), 11 W. Mt. Royal Ave. The event is free and open to the public.
Ten teams from six Maryland high schools will compete this year, including Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, Gerstell Academy, Liberty High School, Long Reach High School, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School, and Sparrows Point High School. The winning team will go on to compete at the National High School Ethics Bowl competition, hosted by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in April.
Ethics Bowl participants take ethical cases covering a broad range of issues, consider their merits, and identify how these issues should be addressed, before qualified judges. The result is a robust dialogue that encourages students to think and communicate clearly and effectively, while practicing civility and consensus building.
