The Georgia Rotary Clubs Laws of Life Essay Contest doesn't happen without judges. And thanks to online judging through Submittable.com, our esteemed Rotarian judges participate from Rotary clubs in all corners of the Peach State.
At GLL, we’re especially pleased to recognize winning writers at both the school and the state level. Over 40,000 students write a Laws of Life essay each year, and schools submit their best to the contest. We expect to award nearly $20,000 in cash awards to students and teachers.
The judging continues through the month of March. School and grade winners will be announced on March 24. One week later, the Georgia Laws of Life state winners and runners-up will be announced on Friday, March 31.
Here's what some judges had to say:
“…what an honor it was to read these essays" ... A. Hombroek, Rotarian
“… reading the essays and hearing what these young voices have to say about the lessons that life is teaching them is inspiring and instructive. Participating as a judge is a way to listen to the next generation and honor their experience.” ... G. B. Edwards, Rotarian
