About Students of the Year

Students of the Year is a philanthropic leadership development program during which students foster professional skills such as entrepreneurship, marketing, and project management in order to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), the world's largest nonprofit fighting blood cancer.  The title Student(s) of the Year is awarded to the candidate or co-candidates in each community who raises the most funds during the competition. 

We call on those strong enough to fight for others.
