2022 Senior Ethics Olympiad Resources
Welcome to the resource website for the 2022 Senior Secondary Students Ethics Olympiad. The links here will provide you with everything you will need to prepare teams for the upcoming Ethics Olympiad. This information will be particularly useful to anyone new to the Ethics Olympiad. Coaches should feel free to pass this link on to their eth-letes (students).
The Ethics Olympiad has a proven track record of providing teachers and students with a creative vehicle for developing skills in communication, critical thinking and respectful discourse while dealing with important and interesting ethical issues.
Schools have entered 5-10 students to participate in the Ethics Olympiad. At the Olympiad, we refer to students as “Eth-letes” as like athletes they are in training for excellence in ethical thinking. Unlike debating, students can take the position they want at an Ethics Olympiad. They work as a team, with teams from other schools to come up with the best possible answer to difficult ethical questions.
During the day all students will be involved in a series of four heats where they will be scored according to set criteria that rewards, clear, concise, respectful discourse around interesting ethical cases. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will be awarded to the top three school teams. Gold and Silver medal-winning schools will be invited to represent their region and country at the International Ethics Olympiad final.
