Before you register, let's make sure your team is eligible
Any team that finished in the top four at their regional competition is invited to register for the 2019 Summer High School Ethics Bowl Invitational. Spots will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will be capped at 20 teams.
For any school that had multiple teams in the top four of their regional, only one team is guaranteed a spot. Additional teams from those schools may be permitted to compete if space allows. Please make a note on your team registration form if your school is able and willing to field more than one team. You will be notified by April 15th if there is space for an additional team from your school.
If a school finished 5th or 6th because another school had multiple teams finish in the top four, that school is eligible to apply to compete.
Participating schools must commit to bringing an adult coach, and an adult chaperone who will serve as a judge or moderator during the competition. Training materials and on-site training will be available to chaperones.
Team members cannot be 2019 graduates. We are open to having some 2019 graduates assist with the event as a moderator or room assistant. Please contact (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Saige Trottman-Huiet (email@example.com) if you have 2019 graduates who are interested in serving as an event assistant.
