John Templeton wrote a book entitled Discovering the Laws of Life. In this book, Templeton revealed the advice that every major religious scripture offered, from all sorts of places around the world, including various schools of philosophical thought, artists, scientists, historians and storytellers—in regards to one question, “What does it mean to live a good life?” The text has always been a profound literary source and poses a complicated question for anyone around the world. This year is the centenary of John Templeton’s birthday and a new commemorative edition of the book is being released, which is the reason for the scholarship contest. The scholarship is open to high school seniors who can win $5,000.
Students must write a creative paper or create a video that responds to a long prompt which you can find at www.lawsoflifecontest.com. Some of the topics that the contest suggests are how you might fulfill the prompt’s proposition within the last five years or what guiding principles and goals will help you live in the next five years. It’s important to keep your purpose and drive that throughout your response while also being creative and meaningful.
You must have been a high school senior graduating with the class of 2012 or 2013 and plan to enroll in a part time or full time undergraduate degree program at an accredited college, university or trade school. You must be enrolled by Fall 2013. To read more about eligibility and to apply, visit www.lawsoflifecontest.com.
