The Western & Central New York Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society seeks high school students who are enthusiastic about volunteerism, philanthropy, community outreach and leadership for a new fundraising competition called Students of the Year.
The leadership development and philanthropy program will teach students how to raise funds to invest in research to advance lifesaving treatments and cures for blood cancer patients. Every dollar raised counts as one vote. The candidates/teams that raise the most money at the end of the seven-week competition earn the title Student(s) of the Year.
This year’s campaign will kick off March 22. Potential candidates must submit an application online at studentsoftheyear.org by Jan. 5. For questions, to nominate a candidate, or to volunteer, contact Amanda Harley at 249-3019 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
