APPE Two Year College Ethics Bowl
Two Year College Ethics Bowl Update
In response to the continued growth of the Two Year College Ethics Bowl program, and in acknowledgment of the achievement of the competitors in that program, the Two Year Ethics Bowl Committee proposed a change to the original format of the Two Year Ethics Bowl.
The Two Year Ethics Bowl will continue to hold its competition, but that competition is now in line with the IEB Regional Competitions in the Fall of each year. At the end of that competition, the Two Year Ethics Bowl will receive bids to send teams to the International Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl (IEB) Nationals.
Two Year Ethics Bowl Competition information is now listed as an 11th Region on the IEB Regional List and information regarding competition, registration, and cases are listed below the regions.
The Fourth Annual Two Year Ethics Bowl Competition (2016) information can be found at the following link: 2015 IEB Regional List and Information Please, look for the Two Year Ethics Bowl as the 11th region in that list.

In response to the immense popularity of the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl (IEB), and the exciting prospect of Junior Colleges, Community Colleges, and 2-year Institutions competing in even larger numbers, the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics and Georgia Military College launched the 1st Annual APPE Two Year College Ethics Bowl in April 2013.
On February 18, 2015, the 3rd Annual APPE Two Year College Ethics Bowl National Championship took place at the Hilton Costa Mesa Hotel, Costa Mesa, California, in conjunction with the 2015 APPE Annual Conference. Harper College, located just outside of Chicago, was a very generous and gracious host for this Championship. The third annual event was a great success with more than a hundred two-year college students, coaches, judges, moderators, and volunteers participating from around the nation.
History and Details
The newly launched competition, open to all 2-year college institutions, provides an even greater opportunity for students, across the nation, to access and leverage the extraordinary benefits of studying and researching contemporary ethical issues, refining and polishing critical thinking skills, developing core values, and ultimately helping them to become future leaders in their communities and professions. The APPE Two Year College Ethics Bowl, like the Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl, and National High School Ethics Bowl is an exciting and rewarding competition that combines the excitement and fun of a competitive tournament with an innovative approach to education in practical and professional ethics.
The APPE Two Year College Ethics Bowl gives students from two year colleges a chance to enter an academic competition that combines excitement and fun with an educationally valuable experience in the areas of practical and professional ethics.
Ethics Bowl competitions focus on selected cases developed by APPE ethics faculty, researchers, and professionals; covering a wide range of disciplines, including but not limited to, business, engineering, journalism, law, medicine, and social work. In the competitions students demonstrate their ability to (1) understand the facts of the case, (2) articulate the ethical principles involved in the case, (3) present an effective argument on how the case should be resolved, and (4) respond effectively to challenges put forth by the opposing team as well as the panel of expert judges.
