Long Island High School

Ethics Bowl

Saturday, February 3, 2024
Hofstra University, Hempstead NY

Hofstra University is honored to host the 2024 High School Ethics Bowl. The ethics bowl is a competitive yet collaborative event in which students analyze and discuss real-life, and timely, ethical issues. An ethics bowl differs from debate in that students are not assigned opposing views; rather, they defend whatever position they believe is right and win by showing that they have thought more carefully, deeply, and perceptively about the cases in question. Experience shows that the event encourages and promotes ethical awareness, critical thinking skills, civil discourse, civic engagement, and an appreciation for diverse points of view.

The faculty of Hofstra University's Department of Philosophy has been assisting in preparing the high school faculty and students who will take part in this year's bowl. They have also created training videos to assist teams in getting ready for the event.
