2017 Palm Beach County Students of the Year Candidates at The Gardens Mall
Students are selected as candidates via the LLS selection committee. Selection is based upon submission of an application, including a questionnaire and brief essay by interested students. Once a student is selected, they will create a 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. Our 2017 candidates raised over $104,000 in just 7 weeks!
