High School Challenge 2015     

Students rise to the Challenge to help meet patient needs!

      

Why Challenge your students? They have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of local patients and the future of fighting blood cancers! Students can flex their creativity, build leadership skills, learn about working with non-profits, and gain insight into their own amazing talents.

_________________________________________________________

Program Overview:

  • Program held each February
  • High Schools will compete against others in their county
  • Student organizations are asked to meet three challenges -
    • Document how your school raised awareness for blood cancer patients and the progress to find a cure
    • Coordinate 3 fundraisers (select from a LLS provided list of programs or design your own!)
    • Involve the community -show us how you got the word out to your community (newspaper, email, announcement at sports games, etc.)
  • Planning takes preparation! Set up your Fall Planning meeting and January Kick-off meeting to help get a jumpstart. LLS staff will hold a leadership meeting and explain more about where their funds go in the help to find a cure.
  • Have a Domino's Dough Raising Night; Domino's will donate 20% of your school's net sales back to you!
  • Host an All You Can Eat Pizza Kick-off Party provided by Domino's - $5 tickets ($2.50 goes directly back to your schools grand total!)
  • Program materials, videos, and education tools provided to help enhance your organizations experience
  • Every student group running the program receives a pizza party as a thank you from the Society.
  • FUN! Build great leadership skills and have an amazing experience!

You can also register for the Pennies for Patients program to start helping local blood cancer patients and getting your students acclimated to this community fundraiser.
