March 4, 2008 - St. Benedict Grade 12 students Dayna Corelli, Kathryn Piché, Kyle Deegan and Karen Lee competed againstt schools from the Sudbury Catholic District School Board and the Rainbow District School Board in the 2007 Young Philanthropist Challenge, hosted by Volunteer Sudbury recently.

The goal of the challenge was for each team of high school students to represent a non-profit organization and to prepare a business plan and presentation that displayed the role of the local agency within the community. Each team was evaluated on their business plan presentation by a panel of judges who decided which group of Young Philanthropists deserved to win funding for their organization. As co-winner of the event the St. Benedict team was awarded $2,500 from the Trillium Foundation to help the Sudbury Action Centre for Youth continue their programs for youth in the community.
