The Best Class Ever Challenge

June 9 - September 15, 2023

LSM has 17 Best Classes Ever.
Which class will claim bona fide bragging rights for 2023?

The Leadership Southern Maryland (LSM) Alumni Committee is pleased to announce the 2023 Best Class Ever (BCE) Challenge. Each LSM class claims to be the Best Class Ever. From June 9th to September 15th, we are hosting a three-month pilot challenge to see which class will claim that distinction officially for 2023. Alumni earn points for their classes by engaging in a range of LSM and community activities. The class with the most points on September 15th (at 11:59pm ET) will be declared the Best Class Ever for 2023!

Earn BCE points for your class by joining or renewing your membership in the LSM Alumni Association, attending LSM events, donating to LSM, volunteering with LSM or in the community, and through other means, detailed below.

The Best Class Ever for 2023 will be announced at Homecoming in October!
