Each school winner receives a $100 cash award and each grade level winner receives a $50 cash reward.  The Georgia Laws of Life Essay Contest is a state-wide essay, character-values based contest for high school students.  All students at Rome High School are asked to select a "Law of Life" (a wise saying or quote) and write an essay on how the maxim applies to their life.   Nearly 40,000 Laws of Life essays were written by Georgia students.  The Georgia contest is the largest Laws of Life contest in North America.  Rotary and the Laws of Life contest are both committed to character education and promoting better communities.
