About Student Visionaries of the Year

About Student Visionaries of the Year

Visionaries look to the future—and see infinite possibility.
They challenge the status quo—and make the impossible possible.
They boldly imagine a better world – and lead the charge to create it.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) was built on that same vision - of a better world - one without blood cancers. Through our Student Visionaries of the Year campaign, we are excited to recognize these young leaders for being what we need most: visionaries.

Formerly the iconic Students of the Year campaign, Student Visionaries of the Year is a groundbreaking philanthropic leadership development program in which highly motivated high-school leaders embark on a journey of professional growth, fostering professional skills such as entrepreneurship, marketing, and project management - all while raising as much funding and awareness as possible to impact LLS's lifesaving mission.

These tenacious young changemakers fundraise for LLS in honor of blood cancer patients and survivors. Student Visionaries of the Year titles are awarded to the candidate teams who raise the most funds in their community during the 7-week competition. With the goal of delivering the greatest mission impact possible, LLS is thrilled to celebrate our student visionaries for being leaders today, tomorrow and into the future.
