This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


The Students of the Year Campaign is a seven-week initiative in which nominated high school students participate in a fundraising competition to benefit the lifesaving mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society: to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

The top fundraising candidate (or team of students) at the end of the seven-week challenge earns the title "Student(s) of the Year" as well as a $1,000 scholarship to the college or university of his/her choice. Throughout the campaign, the students will be raising money in honor of a local patient hero who is currently battling a blood cancer.

Students of the Year candidates are high school students enrolled in Silicon Valley & Monterey Bay Area public or private schools who are interested in and enthusiastic about volunteerism, philanthropy, community outreach, and leadership. This campaign not only offers visibility in the community and local media but also demonstrates candidates’ excellence in leadership and community engagement for college applications and professional resumes.
