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.

Our local campaign began in 2017 with 8 Candidate Teams  raising $160,000. Since then over 34 teams have participated raising over $1.1 Million! We are so excited to continue our growth in 2020!

Congratulations to all 2019 Students of the Year candidates and team members who helped raise a recording breaking $657,000 for the LLS Mission. And thank you to our current 2020 candidates and team members for signing up to save lives!
