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.

This year, we had 38 teams made up of 85 candidates and more than 240 team members come together to raise over $2 million for LLS's mission to cure blood cancers. Congratulations to all of our 2019 National Capital Area Students of the Year participants and to our winning team, Team Fire Hearts, led by Lilly Evans and Gabrielle Russo! Watch their interview on Good Morning Washington to learn more about their winning campaign!

Our 2020 Students of the Year campaign will be held from January 18th to March 7th. We are currently accepting nominations for 2020 candidates.
