Students of the Year
The Students of the Year campaign is a philanthropic leadership development program through which highly motivated, and inspiring 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. The deadline for applications is November 15, 2019. The fundraising workshop, welcome to all candidates, parents and team members is Monday, November 18, 2020. Please contact Amber.Hydash@LLS.org for more details.
