ABOUT STUDENT OF THE YEAR
The Students of the Year Campaign is a seven-week initiative in which a high school student, or teams of 2 students, participate in a fundraising competition to benefit LLS's Central Ohio Chapter. Candidates raise money in honor of a local patient hero who are currently battling a blood cancer. The candidate who raises the most money at the end of the seven weeks is named Students of the Year. In addition, there are Citizenship Awards for the student candidates who excel in Volunteerism, Community Involvement, and Mission Focus.
Why participate in Student of the Year?
To join the fight against cancer and improve the quality of life for our patients and their families. Leukemia is the number one cancer killer of our children under the age of 20; therefore kids are helping kids battling these devastating cancers.
To boost college applications with a leadership and philanthropic adventure. Candidates have the opportunity to build their college resume, fulfill service learning requirements and learn valuable leadership and life skills.
To earn college scholarships. The Student of the Year will receive a $2,500 scholarship toward the college or university of his/her choice.

Bringing together the students and their families to celebrate the inspiring amount of life-saving funds raised by these dedicated and outstanding students
