McIntosh High’s Lex Cho is the 9th grade winner of the Georgia Rotary Clubs Laws of Life Essay Contest.
A Law of Life is a short, pithy saying or quotation that points to a core personal value or ideal. Oftentimes, a Law of Life serves as a memorable and meaningful moral compass on a person’s journey through life.
The Georgia Laws of Life Essay Contest asks students to select their own Law of Life, and to write about how it applies to their lives. In doing so, students reflect deeply and write from the heart about what they think matters most. The contest celebrates the students’ stories and their often profound reflections, and proudly presents significant cash awards to students and teachers.
Each year, more than 40,000 Georgia students write a Laws of Life essay, and Rotary presents $20,000 in cash awards to students and teachers.
