On Saturday, 30 January, eight Rainier Beach High School students participated in the Washington State High School Ethics Bowl at the University of Washington. The two teams did spectacularly in the qualifying rounds: one team came out 3-0 and the other 2-1.
Though they ended up getting edged out of the semifinals in a three-way tie with Lakeside for the last seed, one of their teams won the Award for Civil Dialogue. This means that both teams will get to spend a day in Olympia! The day will include a tour of the Washington State Supreme Court, attendance at oral arguments, a lunch reception with the justices and meetings with State Legislators.
If you know any of these students, please congratulate them on their impressive performances this weekend!
