Laws of Life

Laws of Life Essay Contest

In 1987, Sir John Templeton created the Laws of Life essay contest in his hometown of Winchester, Tennessee, to encourage young people to reflect and write about their own laws of life. At that time, Sir John never imagined that the contest would spread throughout the United States and around the world. The laws of life are the core values, ideals, and principles by which we live.

Green Schools Foundation is a proud sponsor of the Laws of Life essay contest for the eighth grade and eleventh grade students in Green Local Schools. GSF provides funding for the cash prizes that are awarded to the local essay finalists.
