About this event
The third annual Saskatchewan High School Ethics Bowl is hosted by the University of Saskatchewan Department of Philosophy. This is a qualifying event for the national competition in early May 2024.
The ethics bowl promotes a high level of collaboration between students. Students discuss timely ethical issues and sharpen their critical thinking skills in a friendly environment. An ethics bowl differs from a debate in two ways. First, students choose what position to argue. Second, students are rewarded for refining, and even amending, their initial views when faced with compelling arguments.
