FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why aren’t team members who graduated eligible?
For liability and accountability reasons, we are not allowing students who have graduated to attend.
Most of my team were seniors. Can I replace them with new teams members?
Yes. Schools are free to have students participate who were not on the original regional team. We encourage schools to replace graduated seniors with new members and think of this as a rebuilding and training opportunity for their teams.
Can parents and guardians attend?
Yes! We welcome parents and guardians to attend. A room block will be available at the Inn at DePauw. To receive the discounted rate, ask for “Summer High School Ethics Bowl Invitational” room block.
Do students need and coaches need to bring linens?
