About This Scholarship

Students of the Year – Middle Tennessee is a fundraising competition organized by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to support its mission of finding cures for blood cancers and improving the lives of patients and their families. The competition involves teams of high school students who compete to raise the most funds for LLS over a seven-week period.

During the competition, each team is paired with a patient hero who has been affected by blood cancer. The team works to raise funds through various activities such as bake sales, car washes, and online fundraising campaigns. The team that raises the most funds at the end of the seven weeks is named the “Student of the Year.”

The Students of the Year – Middle Tennessee competition is part of a larger national fundraising campaign organized by LLS. The program provides students with an opportunity to develop leadership skills, build their resumes, and make a positive impact in their communities.
