Welcome to Connecticut's Laws of Life Essay Program! The descriptions and links listed here are to help support a teacher’s choice to register their class(es) for this free character-education writing project. While SEE only administers this project for teachers and their students in Connecticut schools, we welcome those outside of Connecticut to use any of the resources provided on the site to administer their own writing project.
SEE is a non-sectarian 501(c)3 education organization that obtains meaningful financial support from public and foundation grants, fees for services, and gifts from those who support ethics in action. SEE is not affiliated with any religious organization and does not espouse or represent any specific religious belief.
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.
Congratulations to the talented students who won the 2015 Laws of Life Essay Contest!
