The Laws of Life Program is a character-building activity that helps young people focus on and develop positive character traits that lead to successful citizenship and a successful life. More than 5,000 students contributed essays for judging. Forty semi-finalists presented their papers orally in front of the Blue Ribbon Panel of judges. From these, four finalists in each division were selected, and the winners were announced at the banquet. We are #CCPSProud of all the students who participated.
