The Laws of Life Essay Contest is a character-themed essay competition for students, originally created by Sir John Templeton in 1987, and adopted by BBB’s Center for Character Ethics in 2009 as a vital component of the future leaders programming.
Kingsway Academy’s Daran Neely and Rishanane Thomas were tied for fifth and took home 0 each. Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Academy’s Richgena Sturrup and Dasean Hield tied for third and took home 0 each. The goal of the competition is to expose students to the many character-forming laws of life, which Sir John Templeton valued as important.
Templeton believed that there exists a set of rules which can make people’s lives happier and successful, if they lived by them.
