Students from Notre Dame and St. Ursula Academy are ‘battling it out' to see which school would donate the most pints of blood. The challenge continues through Sept. 20 in remembrance of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Miss Gilson, 16, of Delta, Ohio, spearheaded the project as one of only 14 students nationwide who serve on the generationOn National Youth Council.
