On Saturday, January 21st, the Parr Center for Ethics hosted the 5th annual North Carolina High School Ethics Bowl at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The all-day event centered on developing analytical and respectful discussions on topics such as virtual reality, grumpy cat, armed policed, and religious garb. 14 high schools located across the Triangle Area, Winston-Salem, Wake Forest, Fayetteville as well as Augusta, Georgia created a field of 22 teams–the largest North Carolina competition to date!
We are excited to announce the winner of the North Carolina High School Ethics Bowl: North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics. North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics won the competition in 2015 as well.
The top four teams:
- North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics Team 1
- Durham School of the Arts
- Carolina Friends School Team 1
- Eastern Alamance High School Green Team
The Spirit of the Ethics Bowl as voted by their competitors: Chapel Hill High School
Congratulations to all the teams that competed in this year’s competition! The judges and spectators have noted the outstanding presentations, the respectful dialogue, and the collegiate atmosphere given by teams.
The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics will now advance to the National High School Ethics Bowl on April 7-9th.
Thank you to all volunteers–judges and moderators–for supporting a unique learning experience in civil discourse for over 150 students. Without you, it would not be possible to make this event such a success!
