The Wisconsin Honey Producers Association is seeking candidates for the 2023 Wisconsin Honey Queen position. The Wisconsin Honey Queen spends the year traveling the state, educating the public and promoting the beekeeping and honey industry in Wisconsin. Applications are due by October 8, 2022.

We are currently seeking a qualified individual to serve as our 2023 Wisconsin Honey Queen. If you are interested in the position, please contact Mary Kettlewell at 414.429.5502 or wihoneyqueenprogram@gmail.com for more information.

The Wisconsin Honey Producers Association (WHPA) sponsors the Wisconsin Honey Queen program and annually selects a young woman between the ages of 18 and 24 to serve a year long term as the Wisconsin Honey Queen. The selection is made at the WHPA convention in November. Local honey queens who have served at least 6 months are eligible to compete for the state title. Other candidates who are not currently a local honey queen may also apply. Candidates applying for the position are judged on an interview, essay, marketing presentation, and interaction with attendees while at the convention.

The Wisconsin Honey Queen spends the year traveling the state, promoting the beekeeping and honey industry in Wisconsin. She is available to speak with students of all ages, agricultural groups, civic groups, and youth groups as well as appearing at fairs, festivals, and farmers markets.

After crowning her successor at her outgoing WHPA convention, the Wisconsin Honey Queen competes for the American Honey Queen position, sponsored by the American Beekeeping Federation.
