MODERATORS

What is an OEB moderator?
The Ontario Ethics Bowl is one of the largest extra-curricular events in the country. Hundreds of high school students commit many hours to prepare for the competition; judges (mostly university professors) volunteer their time to adjudicate the matches; and the best teams are awarded with the chance to compete at the Ontario - and possibly national - championships.

The job of a moderator is to ensure that these students and judges receive the professional event they deserve. Moderators are the heartbeat of an ethics bowl competition; they are the conductors, captains, and regulators of their 'rooms'; they make it their principal responsibility to uphold and enforce the OEB match rules, standards of conduct, and systems of respect. As a moderator, you are the face of the ethics bowl and someone from whom much is expected. As you can tell, the role of moderator is devastatingly important and something for which the utmost seriousness must be taken.

We invite applications only from those students who are serious about community involvement, understand the importance of being a moderator, and who carry themselves with professionalism, integrity, and respect.
