The Hoffberger Center for Ethical Engagement at The University of Baltimore will host the 2023 Mid-Atlantic High School Ethics Bowl, live and in-person in the William H. Thumel Sr. Business Center on the UBalt campus, on Saturday, Feb. 11.
The High School Ethics Bowl is a competition about stimulating ethical discussions featuring some of the region's brightest and most insightful high school students. The event is part of a larger national event, which has grown over the past decade to include nearly 4,000 students from more than 500 schools.
The National High School Ethics Bowl mission statement says: "Our collaborative model 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."
During the pandemic, the Ethics Bowl was hosted virtually. This year marks the return of an in-person event, which means that volunteers are needed to serve as judges and moderators.
