APPE IEB® National Competition
The 28th Annual Association For Practical And Professional Ethics Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl® will be held in Cincinnati on February 24 and 25, 2024 at the Hilton Netherland Plaza.
Thirty-six student teams from institutions of higher learning across the country will compete in matches using a set of prepared cases that are drawn from real-life examples in education, business, life, and politics. A team of case writers works on cases throughout the summer and fall and students have approximately two months to prepare for the competition. More than 200 teams from more than 150 schools compete in regional competitions each fall to earn a berth to the national competition.
The national competition is held in conjunction with APPE’s annual conference each year. In 2023, the competition was held in Portland, Oregon. The winning team was from the U.S. Naval Academy.
