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 2020 Columbus Students of the Year winner, Team Eagles Against Cancer, and to all of our 2020 candidates! Collectively, 11 candidate teams comprised of 22 candidates raised over $313,000 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! Our 2021 campaign begins on February 4th, 2021 and ends on March 26th, 2021 at our Grand Finale celebration! We are currently accepting nominations for 2021 candidates.
