Our club has been and will continue to be a big supporter of the Georgia Laws of Life Essay Contest. Members of our club have served on the Board of Directors for the Georgia Rotary Districts Character Education Program which governs the contest.
In addition to our annual contribution of $1000 to the program we dedicate one of our meetings to the award winners from Roswell High School and Independence High School. Students read their essays to our club and are presented with their medals during the meeting. There usually isn't a dry eye in the room.
The Georgia Laws of Life Essay Contest is a character education and ethical literacy program for high school students, grades 9 – 12. Today four students presented their essays on meaningful experiences in their lives that brought home to them positive character building lessons to carry through life.
