Saturday November 9th, 2019 at the University of North Florida


The 15th Annual Southeast Regional Ethics Bowl will be held on November 9th, 2018, from 8 AM to 6:30 PM at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, FL. Our Regional Bowl, like the 20-year-old National Bowl, provides an opportunity for students to engage in thoughtful consideration of important ethical issues of the day. The regional ethics bowls serve as Qualifiers for the Twentieth Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl Competition to be held at the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics Annual Meeting in February 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia.


Only teams that participate in a regional bowl and rank among the best in each region are eligible to compete in the National Bowl. Schools may participate in the regional bowl without planning to send a team to the national competition, however that must be noted on paying by saying you are attend SEREB for practice. Up to twenty (20) teams will participate in our regional bowl this year.


We will continue with the format of 4 Rounds.


Like last year, the Rounds will be decided by the number of Judges voting for the team. Tiebreakers will also be decided by number of Judges voting for a Team. Differentials and Points will only be used if the number of Judges is also a tie.


The schedule will be two morning Rounds, Lunch, two afternoon Rounds, followed by the presentation of the winners.


Because of logistics, we will limit the number of participating Teams to 20. This year there is a new registration process below - by paying you will reserve your team (although those competing for nationals over practicing will still be given priority). Link below.


The cost will be $250 per team paid to UNF. Like this past year, Nationals requires that someone connected to the Team be a member of APPE, or alternately the Institution can have a membership. In addition, you must pay APPE $125 to compete at any regional competition, and an additional $125 if you move onto the National Bowl.


Registration is only complete upon receipt of payment. Payment procedures are below. If any team needs special accommodations for payment and registration, we are very reasonable people.


If you have any questions or comments, please just use the contact Mitch Haney at
