2022 Senior Ethics Olympiad

Welcome to the resource website for the 2021 Senior Secondary Students Ethics Olympiad. The links below will provide you with everything your school needs to know about the upcoming Ethics Olympiad and this information will be particularly useful to anyone new to the Ethics Olympiad. Coaches should feel free to pass this link on to their ethletes (students).

While we are aware of the benefits of running these events at a local school the new online format for the Ethics Olympiad has provided enormous benefits. It has enabled us to offer the event to a broader range of students, with remote and regional schools now able to easily participate in the event. Furthermore, we have been able to involve Philosopher / Judges from around the world ….and the new format means that teachers (coaches) no longer have to be judges on the day. Also, disruption to school life and the cost to schools has been reduced with travel to and from a venue no longer required.

We trialled an online format with schools using Zoom successfully in May, June, July and November 2020 with participants from around Australasia, South America, China, the US and Canada. The other benefit of this new online format is that we can more readily engage with schools nationally and internationally. Therefore unlike previous years, we will be inviting successful schools to represent their region against other schools in other states and overseas.
