Beacons of the Future!

Timothy S. Greer won the 2014 Beacon Award. Susan Diamond, left,  and Elaine Coppola are Society members.  
With dismay I realize that it's been almost four years since I've written about the Beacon Society in these pages. I'll wait while you follow that link.

As you now know if you didn't before, the Beacon Society is a group "supporting and recognizing exemplary educational experiences that introduce young people to the Sherlock Holmes stories." It's a scion society of the Baker Street Irregulars.

I’m happy to report that the Society is once again making grants available to U.S. and Canadian teachers, librarians, and Sherlockian literary societies.  The grants, in honor of a wonderful Sherlockian, the late Jan Stauber, provide up to $500 to fund development of a project introducing young people to the Great Detective.
Interested individuals and organizations are invited to apply for the Beacon Society's major funding project. The grant period will be from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017.
For more information on the grant, as well as the grant application, go to the Society’s website:  http://www.beaconsociety.com/awards/the-jan-stauber-grant-winners/jan-stauber-grant
But don't stop there: Check out the main page of the website as well.
