The Georgia Laws of Life Essay Contest is a character education and ethical literacy program for high school students, grades 9 – 12. The contest asks students to select a Law of Life or maxim (such as “Honesty is the best policy,” or “To give is better than to receive”), and to write a personal essay explaining how the Law of Life applies to the student’s life. The program challenges students to reflect upon core values such as perseverance, generosity, courage and compassion, and it rewards those students who are willing to take a stand for their beliefs.
