Laws of Life Writing Program

Made possible by a grant from The School for Ethical Education

 

The Laws of Life writing program encourages middle school and high school students to reflect and write about a core value that means the most to them – and why.

The Board and Staff at Character.org congratulate the hundreds of students who
submitted to us their Law of Life essay!

A group of distinguished judges read each essay and let us know which
five (5) essays were the most compelling within each of these 4 categories:

Middle Schools

United States
Nations outside the U.S.

High Schools

United States
Nations outside the U.S.

We then asked another group of judges to select
5 essays to represent the most compelling essays worldwide.

Do you want to feel inspired?

Then read each of these uplifting, heartfelt essays!
