All 4-H club members are invited to submit an entry for the
ANNUAL BEE KEEPING ESSAY CONTEST:
The essay provides a platform for youth to creatively express their working
knowledge and research of the craft of beekeeping.
This year's theme: “Planting for Bees from Backyards and Up”
"Beekeeping has become difficult due to a lack of native plants for forage. In this essay, you will be required to discuss ways that habitats can be modified to become “bee friendly”. Does your community allow roadsides and open land to grow wildflowers and encourage native planting of bee friendly plants?
Survey your community to see what is being done to help honey bees. Include your state in your survey to see if there is a wildflower planting program available or any other program that could aid the honey bee.
Essays are due and should be emailed to me at: at email@example.com
