CMS student named finalist in Laws of Life Essay Contest


Sixth grade student Addisyn Ndayitwayeko has been named a Laws of Life essay finalist.

Circleville Middle School – Sixth grade student Addisyn Ndayitwayeko has been named a finalist in the 2019 Central Ohio Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) “Laws of Life Essay Contest.”

The Laws of Life Essay Contest is a character-themed essay competition for students, originally created by Sir John Templeton in 1987, and adopted by BBB’s Center for Character Ethics in 2009 as a vital component of the future leaders programming. The contest challenges young people to discover through reflection and writing what matters most to them in their own lives and the principles they believe should guide their behaviors and choices.

BBB’s Center for Character Ethics sponsors the contest to encourage schools and communities to engage in this enriching and valuable experience. Additionally, Wendy’s, Artina Promotional Products, and Honda have sponsored this year’s essay contest.

As a part of her honors, Addisyn will attend the Laws of Life Banquet to be held on May 9th, receive a $100 cash award, a poster of her essay, and a certificate signed by Governor Mike DeWine.

Addisyn’s essay was chosen out of over 2,500 submissions spanning 21 Ohio counties serviced by the bureau.

Congratulations to Addisyn on her honors and best of luck in the finals competition at the banquet!
