#50Values Tournament Final Four

Today is the start of the Final Four of the #50Values Tournament that we started here on the Values Storying blog three weeks ago. We started with 50 commonly valued ethics and have been working our way toward this community’s most treasured value, the one my readers would most want to be able to pass along to the next generation.

Elite 8 Ethics Results

The winner of each head-to-head match-up advanced to this week’s Final Four, the last round of the tournament. Winners from last week are in bold:

Match-up 1

  • Integrity vs. Faithfulness

Match-up 2

  • Faith vs. Wisdom

Match-up 3

  • Family vs. Commitment

Match-up 4

  • Love vs. Obedience

Note: Again, one value–the same as the previous round–received unanimous support. And I’m still not saying which one. Let’s see if it wins out. One of the three that I had picked to make it until the final round (wisdom) was eliminated in the Elite 8.

Final Four

Voting for this round is different from prior rounds. In the Final Four round, you will rank the remaining values. Accumulated points for each ranking will determine the winner.  Remember, voting for one value does not indicate that another value is not important. The purpose is to prioritize the values that we want to pass along to the next generation.

Happy voting. Thanks for your participation in the conversation. Please use the comments section to make the case for the value you view as most important.
