Students of the Year

The Students of the Year campaign is a philanthropic leadership development program through which highly motivated, high-school leaders embark on a journey of professional growth, ensuring that they stand out when preparing for college and beyond. During the program, students foster professional skills such as entrepreneurship, marketing, and project management in order to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Student leaders fundraise for LLS in honor of children who are blood cancer survivors. The title Student(s) of the Year is awarded to the candidate or co-candidate team in each community that raises the most funds during the 7-week competition.

Congratulations to all 2018 Students of the Year candidates and team members. We are currently accepting nominations for 2019 candidates.

Get Ready to Fundraise! What better way to kickoff our campaign than with a little friendly competition? 

Candidates and their teams will come together at Dave & Buster's at the Irvine Spectrum to kick start their Students of the Year campaigns! It's a race against the clock in this competitive scavenger hunt. Each team will search for items, interact with staff and play games to find answers. Don't forget your team cheer for bonus points!
