St. Mary Catholic School fifth and sixth grade students participate in an Invention Convention each year. The purpose of the Invention Convention is to think about solutions for difficulties for the community, people and/or the environment. Students brainstorm about different ideas, choose an invention and create something they feel would be helpful. The projects were presented and judged during Catholic School Week.

The students that placed this year are, first place, Shelby Smith, Carter Claybar, Max Dileo; second place, Cade Trahan, Nicholas Wilson, Logan Russell; third place, Megan Do, Elizabeth Doan, Jude Fuselier; Honorable Mention, Nate Gary, Matthew Erb, and Lauren Abrego
