The 4-H Essay Contest for 2017 is sponsored by The Foundation for the Preservation of Honey Bees, Inc. The 2017 4-H essay contest topic is: How Can MP3 (Managed Pollinator Protection Plan) More Effectively Protect Honey Bees from Pesticide Exposure?”
Beekeeping has had its five minutes of fame for the past five years. Now more than ever, people are asking “What will happen if the bees are gone?” Your paper should research and help answer this question.
Beekeepers can help 4-H students learn about honey bees and native pollinators in their state, as well as their own State Pollinator Protection Plan. Beekeepers should reach out to their local 4-H students and support their education about honey bees.
Pollinator Stewardship Council has compiled helpful information for your area 4-H students at http://pollinatorstewardship.org/?page_id=5110

Final essays need to be submitted before March 3, 2017
