Attention MFT students! The time has come to register for the 2021 Student Ethics Competition! Registration ends on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 11:59pm ET. The registration form can be found here. The hypothetical for the competition will be released Friday, April 16, 2021. Do not miss this great opportunity!
This competition is designed to encourage MFT students to foster an interest in ethics issues and enhance their ability to analyze and respond to the various ethics issues that they will undoubtedly encounter throughout their careers. In this team competition, as participants, you will submit an essay analyzing and responding to a hypothetical scenario.
There will no longer be separate categories in the competition based on degree. Master’s, Post-Degree Institute, and PhD students will compete in the one category. AAMFT Clinical Fellows who are also currently registered as students may also enroll in the competition. Each team can only have one Clinical Fellow, and a Clinical Fellow cannot serve as team leader. All team members must be members of AAMFT. For more information on eligibility, visit the official competition website.

The second place team members will each receive a cash award of $200 and an award plaque of recognition.
