In the spring of 2019, St. Louis area high school and collegiate students raised $210,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Students of the Year Campaign. LLS Campaign Manager, Molly Devine, is hoping they will do it again this year. The 3rd annual Students of the Year competition will be held at the Frontenac Hilton in St. Louis on April 3, 2020.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Students of the Year campaign is a philanthropic leadership development program for teens that runs for seven weeks and encourages students to utilize professional skills such as entrepreneurship, marketing and project management as they raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The student or team in the St. Louis area that raises the most money wins the title of Student(s) of the Year and receives a $2,500 scholarship toward the college or university of their choice. Students from the St. Louis area that are looking for more information on the program or would like to apply this year can contact Debbie.Kersting@LLS.org or visit studentsoftheyear.org/students-year-st-louis.
