Hiram College

The Hiram College Ethics Bowl team traveled to Harper College on November 13, 2010, to compete in the Upper Midwest Ethics Bowl, against 15 other teams from Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Joey Sittler, ’14, Rachel Petrack,’13, Corey Trusso, ’12 and Caroline Christoff, ’12 – all ethics minors – participated. The team won one round and lost two. Their victory came on a case concerning the moral justifiability of anti-spanking laws argued by Sittler.

Ethics Bowl is a debate competition that focuses on ethical analysis and argumentation concerning a wide variety of case studies in ethics, and is held regionally each November.
