Ethics Bowl:

The Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl is a nationally organized competition in which teams of students compete in performing moral evaluations of real-life cases. Students are judged on their factual grasp of the nuances of difficult cases, the clarity of their moral reasoning and on their ability to express the above. It thus combines public speaking, research and thoughtfulness in a challenging environment in the very best tradition of collegiate (and collegial) humanities.
