The 11th Annual Youth in Philanthropy granting ceremony happened today at the St. Thomas Aquinas High School chapel.
YIP students from T.A and Beaver Brae schools awarded a total of $4,000 in community grants to registered charities in the Kenora and Lake of the Woods region that they felt, after research, were the most deserving.
