Explore more about the fascinating story of the hardworking honey by participating in the North Carolina 4-H Beekeeping Essay contest. The essay provides a platform for youth (you) 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 February 15th at 5p and should be emailed to Liz Driscoll at liz_driscoll@ncsu.edu. *Please submit notice to catherine_daniels@ncsu.edu PRIOR to sending the essay to Liz at NCSU if you plan to submit an article so that this can be recorded at the Mecklenburg 4-H office. We appreciate your cooperation!
