Harvard-Westlake participants took fifth place in the Annual Southern California High School Ethics Bowl, winning two rounds out of three rather than losing two rounds as previously thought.

The team received an email Dec. 23 informing them of the change in the standings.

The team of seven students, including Cameron Cabo ’16, David Ozen ’16, Su Jin Nam ’16, Jaebok Lee ’16, Jessica Pfeifer ’16, Nathan Lee ’16 and Danica Kim ’15, were accompanied by English teachers Malina Mamigonian and Charles Berezin to the competition at the University of Southern California on Dec. 6.

“I think we were quite successful, as it was our first competition as a team,” Nam said. “We had great teamwork, a lot of fun, and we learned a lot from other teams.”

In the future, students plan to enter in several ethical essay writing competitions, as well as participate in school-related functions during the school year.
