Annually, the foundation invites educators from both District 87 and Unit 5 to submit requests for grant monies to fund innovative projects. Since 1992, $609,563 has been awarded to support 755 projects requested by educators in the two school districts.
Thanks to everyone who came out to this special anniversary event October 12, 2017 at ISU’s Hancock Stadium Club! It was a great evening to celebrate Beyond the Books and to get excited about the next 25 years.
Special thanks to Science Bob as well, who entertained all of us! If you missed Science Bob that evening, check out these links to Science Bob in action on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and on the “Today Show” with Zach Braff.
