Laws of Life concludes each year with an award program for the writers, their teachers and family at SEE’s spring Character Celebration.  Pictured above are the 2017 essay winners that attended the Celebration.

​Connecticut’s Laws of Life essay program offers a great opportunity for Connecticut students in grades 5–12 to think, reflect, and then write about their core values, principles and ideals that will guide them throughout their lives.
