The BCBA board has voted to sponsor three Tennessee Beekeeper Grants in 2014.

These grants are given through the Tennessee Beekeepers Association, and they must have the sponsorship of a local beekeeper organization.

The association will also award five $200 Charlie Stewart scholarships for new beekeepers or those who have innovative ideas about beekeeping in the area.

Applications and more information about these awards and grants will be available at the January meeting.
