  • Each team will pay one payment for their Regional competition to APPE to cover the specific regions costs and the APPE regional payment. PLEASE NOTE: The amount listed for your region includes the APPE portion, so only one payment is needed.  As always, this fee covers up to 2 teams.  Please, check with your region to see if they allow more than one team per school.
  • Each team will provide to APPE at the time of payment an Regional Individual Team Form.
  • A team will not be considered registered for their competition until both items are received.



The registration fees for participation in the Regional Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl are, as follows:

1. APPE Ethics Bowl Regional fee for all Teams $100 (included in your regional payment amount listed above.)
2. Regional Host Registration Fee (Varies by region. Some regions do not require an payment above the $100 APPE fee.)
3. All Ethics Bowl Teams must have at least one APPE Individual Member or one Institutional Member (student memberships with APPE do not meet this qualification.)
