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.

Fighting Irish Fighting Cancer

This year, we had 10 teams made up of 22 candidates come together to raise over $425,000 for LLS's mission to cure blood cancers. Congratulations to all of our 2020 Augusta Students of the Year participants and to our winning team, Team Fighting Irish Fighting Cancer, led by Christopher Simkins, Lee Perry, and Henry Anderson!!

Our 2021 Students of the Year campaign will be held from January to March. We are currently accepting nominations for 2021 candidates.
