Students of the Year
We are excited to welcome our Class of 2020 Candidates! The Candidates will embark on their Campaign journey starting with our Students of the Year Kickoff event to be held on January 17, 2020. The Candidates will then begin their 7-week fundraising campaigns. Throughout the campaign, the Candidates will use the tools and leadership skills they have fostered to lead their team members in a group fundraising effort. To conclude the campaign, the Students of the Year Grand Finale Gala will be held on March 7, 2020 at the BWI Marriott Hotel. The Grand Finale Gala invites the Candidates, their team members and many LLS supporters to celebrate a successful campaign with a night of dinner, dancing, and a silent auction. Tickets to the Grand Finale Gala are available for purchase for $150.
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.
