Interested in becoming a 2019 Students of the Year Candidate?
Students of the Year candidates are nominated by members of our Students of the Year Leadership Team. Selection is based upon submission of an application and an interview with LLS Staff, students and their parents. Once a student accepts their nomination, they create a multi-generational team of friends and family members, to help raise funds in honor of local honored heroes who are currently battling or in remission from a blood cancer.
The candidate team that raises the most money at the end of the 7 weeks is named "Student(s) of the Year" and will receive a $5,000 college scholarship! We will also reward the Students of the Year Runner-Up with a $1,000 college scholarship! In addition, there are Citizenship Awards for those students who excel in Volunteerism, Community Involvement and Mission Focus.
Congratulations to our 2018 candidates for raising over $177,000 in just 7 weeks!
