2020 Middle School
Ethics Olympiad
AUSTRALASIAN
FINAL
The top schools from each regional MS Ethics Olympiad are invited to register for this event. Please note it will be run online and we will be using the
same cases as were used in the regional events but the questions asked of students will be different. The structure of the event will be slightly different
in that the start times depend on where you are in Australasia.

8 am - WA
10 am - SA
11 am - ACT, N.S.W, Tasmania & Victoria
1 pm - New Zealand

There will be three heats over the course of the four and a half hour program.

Finish times:
12.30 pm - WA
2.30 pm - SA
3.30 pm - ACT, N.S.W, Tasmania & Victoria
5.30 pm - New Zealand

During the day all students will be involved in a series of three Ethics Olympiad heats where they will be scored according to set criteria which rewards,
clear, concise, respectful discourse around interesting ethical cases. Coaches will be notified of the results later and Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will
be posted to successful schools. Teams of 4/5 students are allowed to enter.

Please note only
one team from each qualifying school can enter (unless your school won multiple medals in your regional Olympiad)

Eligible Year levels
Ideally the team that qualified in the regional event will represent your school again, in which case some students might be in Year 10. We are also
aware that some students move to other schools after Year 9.
Participating students must be in Years 7-9 unless they qualified as a Year 9
student in 2020 and are now in Year 10.
"When first going into this Olympiad I had no
idea what to expect, and I was super nervous-
but I am so glad I did it. It was run wonderfully
and was really interesting. All of the people I
met were super kind. I really enjoyed being able
to share our views and discuss relevant ethical
issues. Thank you!" (Hobart Student)
"The Ethics Olympiad was incredible
and definitely a life changing
experience. It really opened my eyes
to the ethical possibilities and also
allowed me to hear and respect other
peoples positions on the case topics."
