The 10th Annual Long Island High School Ethics Bowl took place at Hofstra University in February 2019.  An Ethics Bowl is a collaborative yet competitive event, in which two teams are presented with a series of wide-ranging ethical dilemmas and are asked to analyze them and students are judged on the basis of their analyses. Twenty-six teams from fourteen different Long Island high schools matched wits over ethical cases whose topics included allocation of liver donations, bringing extinct species back to life, gerrymandering, and buying followers on social media.  The Bethpage team of Andrew Sciglibaglio, Nichole Licata, Soham Maiti, Jessica O'Keefe, and Samantha Salerno took 2nd place while the team of Nichole Zacchia, Ujala Dar, Erica Marciance, and Eirini Drosos took 3rd place! This qualifies both teams for the Prindle Institute National High School Ethics Bowl in June, which will take place in Indianapolis! Congratulations to all of the students that participated!
