Honey Queen/ Ambassador

Calling for 2020 CIBA Honey Queen: This could be you!                                                                              

2019 CIBA Queen: Abigail Kelly


CIBA is looking for a young person to be our Honey Queen or Honey Ambassador. The Honey Queen/Ambassador is the public image of CIBA.  This is an opportunity for a young person to gain leadership skills and public speaking experience while sharing their enthusiasm for honey bees, beekeeping, and products of the hive with Central Iowa Communities.  In addition to community presentations, and participating in CIBA meetings, the Honey Queen/Ambassador will represent CIBA at the Iowa State Fair and the Iowa Honey Producers Association Annual Meeting.  

If you are between 16 – 20 and have a passion for honey bees and beekeeping or you know someone who does, we invite you to apply for the Central Iowa Beekeepers Association Honey Queen or Honey Ambassador.  Please read over the Central Iowa Beekeepers Association Honey Queen/Ambassador Program Guidelines (click here for guidelines) and complete the application (click here to open form). If you have any questions, please contact Susan Kelly, Queen Committee Chair at CIBAQueenChair@gmail.com.
