BeeFest Contest Submissions

Bees don’t just make delicious honey, they are also an important part of our food system. As they buzz around they pollinate fruits and veggies you and I love to eat and need to stay healthy.

Now they need our help!

This summer we’re going to hold the first ever BeeFest an event for families, community groups, bee enthusiasts and scientists to get together and find ways we can all support the regrowth of our bee populations.

To help get people excited about the event we are looking for submission of pictures that represent why bees are important. We will choose one of these pictures as the background for our website for everyone to see.

If you are under 12 or know someone who is, please share this contest with them to help us spread the word on this very important issue. Talk about why bees are so important and submit a picture you think will help educate others.

Please send all picture submission to:

Deadline for submissions is Wednesday, April 30. Winner will be announced Friday, May 2

Thank you for your help and good luck!
