Laws of Life essay helps many teens realize that they have wisdom and life
skills to make a difference for family, friends, and their community.

writing opportunity. More than 200 students from 60 participating high schools
completed the survey.

students responded that writing the essay made them more aware of the importance
of personal values.
- 95% of
students felt that writing a Laws of Life essay and reading/hearing other
essays gave them a better understanding of other students.
- Of students
who attended a meeting at their Rotary Club, 80% said that meeting the members
inspired them to broaden their aspirations for college or career.
