Congratulations to our amazing anthropology students (in alphabetical order: Brooke Blaszynski, Emilia Gibes, Carmen Moy and Sophia Sato) for being crowned co-champions in the Society for American Archaeology Ethics Bowl on Thursday of last week. The Ethics Bowl is a debate-style competition using realistic case studies that challenge participants on their knowledge of anthropological/archaeological ethics and on their judgment. This was the first numerical tie in the 16 years of the event!

Professor Brandon Ritchison of Anthropology and Ms. Krystiana Krupa, UIUC NAGPRA coordinator have worked with the Ethics Bowl team and are incredibly proud of the group's achievement!
