Beginning in 1987, The Washington State Beekeepers Association wanted to recognize the importance of Washington State beekeepers who make a significant impact on the industry.
Each year Local Associations are asked to submit a candidate of their choice to receive the WSBA Beekeeper of the Year Award, to be voted on by the WSBA Executive Board prior to the annual meeting. The selections are to be described in writing, not to exceed one page.
Send your Beekeeper of the Year candidate submission by the September 1, 2013 deadline to Charles Bennett: firstname.lastname@example.org
Criteria: Which beekeeper has done the most to promote and demonstrate good beekeeping, improve the public image of the industry and/or show how this member has volunteered for civic and other projects. The candidate must be a current member of the Washington State Beekeepers Association.
