The Laws of Life Essay Contest
This project encourages students to think about the people and experiences that have helped to shape their values and challenges them to take a stand for what they believe in. Unlike most essay contests, there is no prescribed topic students have to address. The Contest is conducted locally in communities around the world. Each community sponsors and organizes its own contest using a free Contest Information Kit and every contest is unique because local organizers make all of the decisions for the program such as the prizes and who will judge the essays.
