Meet the Winners

Congratulations to the 2018 Students of the Year Winners!

Cousins Samir Shah, 16, of The Calverton School in Huntingtown, MD, and Saar Shah, 15, of Great Mills High School in Lexington Park, MD, raised the most funds across the entire US and earned the winning title, "National Students of the Year," with a record-breaking raise for cancer cures.

These fundraising superstars orchestrated a dynamic campaign that included an innovative kite festival, Fly4aCure, in their close-knit Southern Maryland community. "Flying a kite is a symbol of having high aspirations and elevated vision," said Saar Shah. "We believe in our hopes and aspirations to find a cure for all blood cancers."
