Indiana High School Ethics Bowl

A different kind of debate at a different kind of place

The 2024 Indiana High School Ethics Bowl competition takes place February 3, 2024 at DePauw University. Teams from across Indiana compete for a spot at the National High School Ethics Bowl Competition, hosted by the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. We are excited to announce that we now offer grants of up to $500 to start a new Indiana high school ethics bowl team. Learn more about this opportunity below.

Grants available to start a team

The Prindle Institute grants up to $500 to start and coach an ethics bowl team at your high school during the 2023-2024 school year. Grants will be awarded on a rolling first-come, first-served basis. Half of the grant ($250) will be awarded to the educator on December 1, 2023. The final payment will be issued the week after the competition (February 5-9, 2024).
