PHILADELPHIA – To ensure that every school in the greater Philadelphia and South Jersey regions has an opportunity to submit a project entry for the Beneficial Foundation School Challenge, Beneficial Bank has extended the submission deadline to December 2. The Beneficial Foundation School Challenge program will award multiple $5,000, $1,000 and $500 grants, for a total of $13,000 in grant prizes.
This program gives schools and students within Beneficial’s footprint the opportunity to submit their proposals for unique project ideas to enhance the learning experience in their schools and compete for grant prizes. Schools and students can submit their project ideas in one of three different subject areas- Financial Literacy/Math, Science/History or Language Arts/Reading.
The Beneficial Foundation School Challenge winners will be selected through an online, public voting contest that will take place in the spring of 2012.
The complete Beneficial Foundation School Challenge entry rules and application can be found at https://www.thebeneficial.com/school-challenge.asp. Teachers or school administrators with questions about the program should direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
