What is Bioethics Bowl?

The National Bioethics Bowl brings teams from colleges and universities around the country each year to discuss ethical challenges in biomedicine and technology. 

Months before the event, the teams receive a case packet, containing 15 cases that raise ethical issues, and are tasked with crafting arguments for their positions on each case. 

At National Bioethics Bowl, teams of five compete in several rounds of debate. In each round, two teams debate; each team is presented with a case and offered the opportunity to present their position, hear the reply from the opposing team, and respond to the opposing team and to judges.
