​Rotarians Needed as Volunteers

Rotarians Needed as Volunteer Essay Judges for the Georgia Laws of Life Essay Contest

Like to read? Need meeting make-up credit? Want a peek into the lives today’s youth?

Last year the Essay Reading Sessions held in Atlanta were a big success! This year they are being offered throughout metro Atlanta and state!

The essays provide an eye-opening glimpse into the hopes, struggles and everyday lives of Georgia teens. As a judge, you will see how core values – such as generosity, courage, compassion, perseverance and grit – are experienced by a younger generation.

Volunteer Essay Readers and School Judges are needed to select the grade and school winning essays. We also need, State Finalist Judges to select the state level winning essays. The diagram attached depicts the process.
