2014 Beekeeping Contest
The topic for the 2014 essay contest is: Beekeeping in Colonial Times. All essays must be submitted electronically.
To the earliest European settlers in the New World, honey bees were an important part of their existence. Cargo manifests show that honey bees were among the first shipments of animals. How were they shipped? Why were they important? Why were they so important to the colonists? How does that differ from today?
The scope of the research is an essential judging criterion, accounting for 40% of your score. The number of sources consulted, the authority of the sources, and the variety of the sources are all evaluated.
The essay is due to Kyle Merten at email@example.com by January 10, 2014.

4-H Youth Participation Fee Sponsorship

The participant fee is $25, or $20 if enrolled from September 1st to October 1st. (Clover Kids are exempt from this fee.)
Tarrant County 4-H and local donors have a strong desire to provide opportunities for interested youth and have secured a limited number of sponsorships for youth who may have difficulty with the fee at this time.
