Campbell High School Set to Compete in National High School Ethics Bowl

Campbell High School Ethics Bowl is headed to nationals.

Students from Campbell High School are preparing to travel to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to compete in the eleventh annual National High School Ethics Bowl. Only 24 high schools nationwide are competing in the event hosted by the UNC Parr Center for Ethics.

The Campbell students are the only students from Georgia participating in the weekend of intensive ethical discussion. The National High School Ethics Bowl inspires and challenges high school students across the country to develop their ethical reasoning skills and engage in productive dialogue about complex ethical issues. 

More than 4,000 students from almost 400 schools across the United States competed for one of the coveted seats at the national championship. The Campbell Ethics Bowl team won the state and divisional tournaments in January and February, respectively.

“We are so excited to be competing in Chapel Hill at nationals. We have a thriving team of students who have been researching, exploring, and mindfully unpacking moral dilemmas provided by the National High School Ethics Bowl,” Dr. Heather Lynch, the Campbell teacher who helps lead the awarding Cobb team. 

During the three-day National Championship event, Campbell students will exercise their critical thinking skills, provide each other with constructive criticism, and strengthen core democratic virtues in conversation about 15 case studies developed by the Parr Center. This year’s Championship cases will address questions about the ethics of zoos, space burials, online dating, and more.
