|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.
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)
Prior to the event
Schools will need to register again online. We will be inviting the next placed school if we do not receive a registration within one week of the invitation
being sent. As we are paying moderator judges again we will need to charge an entrance fee. Once registered we will send you a confirmation email.
The registration fee is $240 per team - $225 for member schools). Here is a link to the ethical cases
Medalists will be announced on the following day and certificates will be provided for all participants. Gold, Silver and
Bronze medals will be sent to the three top schools in each location.
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.
