The 27th Annual Association For Practical And Professional Ethics Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl® will be held in Portland, Oregon, on March 4 and 5, 2023.
Thirty-six student teams from institutions of higher learning across the country will compete in matches using a set of prepared cases that are drawn from real-life examples in education, business, life, and politics. Nearly 150 teams from more than 100 schools competed in regional competitions this fall to earn a berth to the national competition.
This year’s national cases will be released soon; past cases have included topics such as the ethics behind facial-recognition software, artificial intelligence, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and more. Judges ask probing questions and evaluate the teams’ efforts to analyze the case’s issues in a clear, focused and thoughtful manner, and help students understand and appreciate different perspectives from their own.
The national competition is held in conjunction with APPE’s annual conference each year.
