The Students of the Year campaign is a wonderful opportunity for Atlanta and Augusta area high school students enrolled in private or public schools who are enthusiastic about volunteerism, philanthropy, community outreach, and developing leadership skills to participate in the fight against blood cancers! The campaign is a six-week initiative in which nominated high school students, or teams of two or three students, participate in a fundraising competition to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Georgia Chapter. The candidate(s) who raises the most money at the end of the six weeks is named Student(s) of the Year. In addition, there is one Mission Award for the student candidate who excels in Mission Focus.

For 2017, the Georgia Chapter will host the Students of the Year campaign in Atlanta and Augusta. For six weeks, our candidate teams are focused on raising as much money as possible for LLS and our mission. Each campaign will culminate in a Grand Finale Gala, celebrating the accomplishments of our student candidates. Winner(s) of the Student of the Year title and Runner(s)-up, along with the Mission Award recipient, will be announced. The evening will include a dinner, silent auction and an awards presentation.
