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 2021 Columbus Students of the Year winner, Team Columbus4aCure, and to all of our 2021 candidates! Collectively, 11 candidate teams comprised of 24 candidates and over 120 team members raised over $191,000 for the LLS mission to cure blood cancer!
Are you the next Student of the Year?! Or do you know a student who is ambitious, has a heart for philanthropy and is a leader? Nominate them today! We're currently recruiting candidates for our 2022 Columbus Students of the Year campaign. Our 2022 campaign will begin in late January 2022 and end in March 2022 at our Grand Finale celebration!
