Laws of Life Essay Contest
Sponsored by the Georgia Rotary Clubs, the Georgia Laws of Life Essay Contest asks students to select their own Law of Life*, and to write about how it applies to their lives. The contest celebrates the students’ stories and their often profound reflections, and proudly presents significant cash awards to students and teachers.
*A Law of Life is a short, pithy saying or quotation that points to a core personal value or ideal. Oftentimes, a Law of Life serves as a memorable and meaningful moral compass on a person’s journey through life.
