ACA: American Counseling Association  
Welcome to the ACA Graduate Student Ethics Competition

On behalf of the ACA Ethics Committee, we would like to thank you for your interest in the ACA Graduate Student Ethics Competition! The purpose of the competition is to educate members of the association regarding ethical issues and to engage graduate students (masters and doctoral level) in critically analyzing a potential ethical case and creating an appropriate ethical decision making plan to respond to the ethical situation.

Registration is now open. The ACA Ethics Committee will begin accepting registrations for the Graduate Student Ethics Competition for teams of Master's students and teams of Doctoral level students in counselor education programs in mid-October. Please review the timeline page for more specific information when it becomes available.

The names and institutions of the winning masters and doctoral teams, along with links to each team project, will be published in Counseling Today and are posted under the Registration menu.
