Thank you for your interest in serving as a judge, moderator, or room assistant for the Indiana State High School Ethics Bowl Regional on February 2, 2019. Your assistance is a critical part of the ethics bowl experience and we appreciate your dedication to Indiana high school students.
This page contains all of the information and training resources you will need to assist the Prindle Institute in successfully hosting another high school ethics bowl competition. Please direct any questions or concerns to Emily Knuth (email@example.com).
Training Information and Ethics Bowl Resources
We will host two training sessions (for first-timers or for folks who need a refresher) prior to the competition: January 24 and January 31, 2019 at 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in DePauw’s Hoover Hall. Free lunch will be provided to all attendees.
In preparation for the competition, please review the following:
- 2018-2019 Ethics Bowl Cases (These are the cases that will be used during competition.)
- Judge Scoring Criteria
- Score sheet
- Moderator Script (This is the script moderators will follow during each session of the competition. Both judges and moderators are encouraged to review this before the competition to become familiar with the rhythm of the competition sessions.)
- National High School Ethics Bowl Official Rules
If you are unable to attend a training session, or if you would like additional information, here are a few useful videos related to judging and moderating a high school ethics bowl competition.
