Edmonds CC students to resolve real-life scenarios in Ethics Challenge



Twenty-five Edmonds College students from various academic programs will compete in an Ethics Challenge sponsored by the college’s Business Management program and Workforce Development and Training, in partnership with The Boeing Company.

The competition — free and open to the public — will be 1:30-3:45 p.m., Thurs., Nov. 20 in the college's Black Box Theatre on campus, 20000 68th Ave. W, Lynnwood. The event will have door prizes.

In the competition, five teams of five students will discuss ethics strategies through two rounds of live scenarios. Each team — using teamwork, communication, and critical thinking skills — will be given seven minutes to discuss its given scenario and three minutes to present solutions.

Both Edmonds CC and Boeing will supply the judges. Students to participate — all who had ethics lessons this fall quarter — are:
