The Humanities Center is pleased to continue its involvement in the Ethics Bowl in partnership with the Philosophy Department. We are again preparing for this important program in February 2016, which provides a valuable opportunity for high school students to experience engagement in civil discourse, working together in teams and grappling with serious ethical issues that concern contemporary society. The Ethics Bowl also introduces these young minds to the humanities.
The winners of the 2015 Ethics Bowl in order of placement are:
- Farragut High School *
- L&N STEM Academy
- Fulton High School
*Farragut High proceeded to the National High School Ethics Bowl at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for the second consecutive year, representing the state of Tennessee.
