The Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions would like to congratulate the students from Nicholas Senn High School, Oak Park and River Forest High School, and Pritzker College Prep for taking part on Chicago's first every high school ethics bowl event. The students took part in two rounds of ethics bowl where they discussed issues ranging from the right to privacy teens have when using social media to the ethics of using stimulants off-label for help in taking standardized tests.
CSEP is looking to plan an official regional high school ethics bowl for the Chicago area in January of 2016 (date to be determined). Winners of this competition will have the chance to take part in the National High School Ethics Bowl competition in late April of 2016 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and compete against the top high school teams from around the country.

If you are interested in learning how to start a high school team in the Chicago area, or are interested in helping organize the regional competition, please contact Kelly Laas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to all the students, coaches, and judges who helped make this event a success!
