Please note, teams may only register for the virtual bowl if you meet one of the following criteria:

  • Any regional competition to which your school could reasonably travel is full.  
  • Your school is competing at a regional competition, but you have additional teams of students who were unable to compete in that region (for example, because the region limited registration to one team per school).  Please note: If your school is sending a team to the virtual bowl and a team to a regional bowl, the virtual bowl cannot be used as the qualifying region, and the team at the virtual must not contain any students on it that also participated in the regional bowl.
  • The distance required for your school to participate in a regional competition is prohibitive.  Please note that "prohibitive" should be understood in the sense that your school could not safely drive to the regional competition in a day (approx. 8 hours). 
  • If your school does not meet one of the three criteria above, but you believe your school has other extenuating circumstances, you may email John Garcia at [email protected] and make a request to be allowed to compete in the virtual bowl.

Important information:

  • All schools must pay a $125 APPE Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl® program participation fee to APPE to participate in the regional competitions.  Most regions have an additional "host fee" to cover their local costs which, this year, is also paid to APPE at the time of registration. Those funds will be distributed to the regions at the close of registration. There is no requirement for APPE membership this year for regional teams.

  • Teams that qualify for the APPE Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl® national competition will pay an additional national competition registration fee to APPE after the regional competitions are completed and the qualifying teams are announced. You cannot register for nationals before receiving a qualifying bid from your regional competition. Click here for more information about the national competition. 

  • Your team will not be considered "registered" for any competition until all required forms and fees have been submitted.

  • Some of the source material cited in the cases may be behind paywalls that individual students may have difficulty accessing.  Since colleges will most often have institutional access to these resources, coaches may need to help their team members access these materials through the institution.  In the case that institutional access is unavailable, you can request the original source material by contacting the Chair of the APPE IEB® Council, John Garcia at [email protected].
