To advance the LCBA’s mission of educating the public about the value of honeybees and the impact honeybees have on our world, the Association sponsors a Youth Education Program.
Selection Criteria and Process for the LCBA Youth Education Program:
Students must be between the ages of 11 and 18.
A program application and questionnaire must be submitted along with supporting documents.
A selection committee will consider each application and select students for the program.
LCBA will provide the opportunity to students to work with an experienced beekeeper on the following activities (but not limited to): Installing bees in a hive; Feeding bees; Inspecting Hives; Disease management; Extracting honey; Winter preparation.
After completing one year of the program the student will be eligible to apply for a sponsorship that would provide: a Beginner Beekeeper’s Kit (see appendix) and a package of bees.
