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. The program is open to all student residents of Collier County who are enrolled in grades 4 through 12. Annually, more than 3,000 students compete for a variety of honors and scholarships in four grade-level divisions.


Congratulations, again, to all the contestants and winners from this year's competition! The winning essays will be posted on the District's website and on social media in the coming weeks.
