Laws Of Life Essay Rubric High School

The "Laws of Life" program is a character building activity that helps young people focus on and develop positive character traits that lead to responsible citizenship and a successful life. It was initiated as a suggestion by members of the Naples Young President's Organization (YPO 49ers) who brought it before the City of Naples and the Collier County School District. Now sponsored by the City of Naples, Collier County Sheriff’s Office, the Southwest Florida 49er’s organization and the School District, the program is open to all student residents of Collier County who are enrolled in grades four through twelve. Over 3,000 students now annually compete for a variety of honors and scholarships in four grade level divisions.

Students initially write essays connected to an annual Character Education, Laws of Life theme. Participating public and private schools then send their top five essays to the district level for judging. The student essays are scored by a committee of readers and the top ten students in each division are then invited to participate in the speech phase of the competition. Once again a committee composed of community judges scores the presentations. The top four student finalists in each division are then invited, along with their parents and teacher to attend the annual banquet where the finalists are recognized and presented with their awards. The banquet is generally attended by the Mayor, members of City and County Government, and selected educational and community leaders. The winning students' presentations in each division are videotaped and can be seen on the School District website as well as on the Education Channel of local Cable TV.
