Regional Ethics Bowl

Ethics Bowl team at Vanguard traveled to Columbia University to participate in NYC’s first Regional Ethics Bowl. Our team participated in 3 intense rounds of ethical discussion where they analyzed 6 complex, modern ethical dilemmas. Vanguard represented as the only non-specialized public school and the only Consortium school at the event. The competition was stiff, but our team held their own. The other participating schools were: 3 teams from Bronx Science, 2 teams from Stuyvesant, 2 teams from Horace Mann, and 2 teams from Oakwood Friends.

Vanguard students demonstrated strong work ethic, critical thinking, and professionalism they demonstrated today and throughout our preparations over the last 3 months. The team improved and gained confidence with each round. In short, they were amazing and a joy to work with.
