The Texas Regional Ethics Bowl serves as a qualifying event for the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl (IEB, or, informally, the national ethics bowl), which will take place on February 21, 2016 in Washington DC. Both the national and regional ethics bowls are sponsored by the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics (APPE). For more information on the IEB and for names of other regional bowls, follow this link: National Ethics Bowl.
The consequences of placing high. The top five
teams of the TREB received a trophy. Our arrangement with
APPE works this way. Our regional event has a number of
places determined by the total number of teams competing
in regional bowls around the country. The top four schools
from our event (not the top four teams) will receive an
invitation to send one team each to the national
event. Schools who have two or more winning teams only
receive a single invitation. If a school with a winning
team declines to accept the invitation, it passes down the
Cases. I selected our cases from a pool of fifteen, written by a committee for use by all regional events.
*** New restriction:
Since this event is sponsored by APPE, they have placed a
new requirement that each team have one individual or one
institutional member of APPE. In most cases, this should
not cause a problem, since someone at your school will
probably be a member of APPE anyway. But it may be a
Fees. The fee this year is $150 dollars per team.
Explanation: APPE collects $100 per team to help defray
the cost of the national event, and I collect $50 to
defray the cost of the regional event. The $50 that I
charge defrays the cost of six t-shirts, six catered
breakfasts, six all-you-can-eat lunches, and the supplies.
No more than two teams from a school may enter. You do not need to make out
a separate check to APPE. Make all checks payable
to St. Mary's University, and send them to:
Robert Boyd Skipper, Ph.D.
In case the check gets
misplaced, please put "Ethics Bowl registration" or some
such comment in the memo space.
