University of Findlay seeking high school teams for Ethics Bowl

FINDLAY — The University of Findlay is hosting its second ethics bowl on Jan. 28 at Winebrenner Theological Seminary. The all day event begins at 9:30 a.m.

Teams will be judged on their responses to ethical conundrums that challenge many of us in our daily lives. Subjects can range from politics to business matters to popular culture. Each fall, the National High School Ethics Bowl releases a set of cases covering a broad range of issues that serve as the focus for the year.

Teams meet regularly, with a coach, to research the cases, discuss the issues they raise and identify clearly how they think those issues should be addressed. Students are rewarded for depth of thought, ability to think carefully and analytically about complex issues and the respect they show to the diverse perspectives of their peers.

Matthew Stolick, professor of philosophy and chair of the Religious Studies and Philosophy Department, is organizing this event. High schools interested in registering a team should contact Stolick at or at 419-434-6998.
