Laws of Life Essay Contest 2016

In 1987, Sir John Templeton created the Laws of Life essay contest in his hometown of Winchester, Tennessee, to encourage young people to reflect and write about their own laws of life. At that time, Sir John never imagined that the contest would spread throughout the United States and around the world. The laws of life are the core values, ideals, and principles by which we live.

Green Schools Foundation is a proud sponsor of the Laws of Life essay contest for the eighth grade and eleventh grade students in Green Local Schools.  GSF provides funding for the cash prizes that are awarded to the local essay finalists.  This year, the finalists were recognized at the Celebration of Education on February 27.

Developing Leaders of Tomorrow

The Developing Leaders of Tomorrow program is part of an academic classroom grant provided by ComDoc, through the Green Local Schools and Green Schools Foundation, and in conjunction with Heart to Heart Communications.  This annual leadership program, which began in 2005, is based on the ComDoc values of Accountability, Decisiveness, Ethics, Passion and Trust, and is designed to prepare select Green High School juniors for the leadership challenges they will face in the years ahead.

Benefits of the program include leadership training with “servant-based philosophy,” understanding characteristics of strong leaders, problem solving experience in leadership, and the possibility of internship with ComDoc.
