Purpose and Objectives
The American Honey Queen Program provides the beekeeping industry with two spokespersons—the American Honey Queen and the American Honey Princess—who travel throughout the country during the year of their reign, developing presentation
skills and public relations expertise while educating people about bees and beekeeping and advocating for the consumption of honey.

The beekeeping industry touches the lives of every individual the United States. The public finds our industry interesting and unique. Promotions can range from presentations at schools, fairs and civic organizations to interviews
with prime media such as radio, television and newspapers.
The Honey Queen and Honey Princess educate the public with facts about bees, beekeeping and honey. Topics they cover include pollination of our nation's crops and how dependent we are on the honey bee for agriculture, how honey is
a healthy substitute for sugar and how honey also extends the shelf life of baked products and adds that extra special something like taste or texture. The ladies do cooking demonstrations using honey in their recipes which the public
will find in the brochures they hand out at promotions.
The Honey Queen and Honey Princess also speak at seniors groups, retail stores, conventions for homemakers, FHA, FFA and the list goes on. They have also been known to help in beekeeping demonstrations at fairs by wearing bee beards
and processing honey from comb to bottle.
