Our mission is to actively encourage participation in and appreciation of educational events  promoting barbecue awareness in Oklahoma.  Grants awarded from the OKBS must reflect our mission statement.

Requests will be considered at our monthly meetings, usually the second Tuesday of each month. Grant awards are usually mailed by the 15th of that month.  OKBS does not fund an entire Kids Q contest, but prefers to sponsor a Kids Q Contest that is supported by other organizations and individuals as a collaborative effort. OKBS requires that credit be given to the OKBS for being a donor or sponsor in whatever way is appropriate for your event or project.
