Honey Queen Program

Each year a Honey Queen is selected to become the main promoter of Pennsylvania's beekeeping industry. The Honey Queen travels throughout the state speaking at schools, fairs, festivals, beekeeping meetings, etc. She participates in media interviews and is always ready to promote the beekeeping and honey industries. The main focus of the Honey Queen program is education; feel free to invite her to give a presentation at your event. The Honey Queen also represents Pennsylvania each year at the American Honey Queen competition, held during the American Beekeeping Federation Convention.

PA Honey Queen Report

October was my last full month of being your 2018 Pennsylvania Honey Queen!

Crafting with Queen Hannah at the State Grange Convention

This month, I attended the South West State Session of the PA Grange. During my weekend visit to the convention, I had the opportunity to talk to them about the importance of honey bees and beekeeping. There were many children in attendance, and I worked with them to make a honey bee craft while we talked about bees.

I can't believe how quickly this year has gone by! I am still in the process of getting all my totals together, but I have gone to over 50 events and reached over a million people. I feel that I have accomplished so much this year, and I am so excited and thankful to have had this opportunity.

I hope to see you all at the Pennsylvania State Beekeepers Association convention in State College on November 2nd, and 3rd. I will be displaying my scrapbook and giving my final presentation as Pennsylvania Honey Queen, and I look forward to telling you all about the wonderful year Iíve had.

At the convention, we will be selecting our 2019 Pennsylvania Honey Queen. To begin arranging a visit, please contact Alyssa Fine at (412) 266-2112 or by emailing
