The 8th Grade STRIVE class from Memorial Middle School traveled to Ringwood to participate in the county’s first ever Ethics Bowl. The students partnered up with peers from different towns to discuss and present ethical dilemmas such as self-automated driving cars, stolen bicycles, and the electoral college. Yastika Singh and her team placed third, while Alex Limone and his team won second. Kaitlyn Amanullah and her teammates made a very convincing argument and placed first. Fellow STRIVE students Nick Raguseo, Nick Salemi, Scott Nayda, and Montana Moraktan also participated in the event. The STRIVE team also competed in county-wide Kahoot Bowl. Yastika Singh, Kaitlyn Amanullah and Montana Moraktan were on a team which came in third place, out of eight schools.
