[This event was] brought to the city by Penn philosophy professor Karen Detlefsen and Graduate School of Education (GSE) doctoral student Dustin Webster, with support from the Netter Center, the Law School, GSE, the Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy, and the Making a Difference in Diverse Communities grant from the School of Arts and Sciences. It stems from an Academically Based Community Service(ABCS) course Detlefsen and Webster ran in the fall, and the winner will compete in playoffs on Feb. 28 for the chance to take part in the National High School Ethics Bowl in April.
