Honey Show Rules 2018


The Texas Honey Show board is so excited to present this year’s competition information.  We are adding a few new offering this year for local beekeeping clubs.

Two Opportunities for Texas beekeeping clubs to win $500

1.) Texas Beekeeping Club with 100 member or less:
The entries in the Texas honey show will be counted and the Texas Beekeeping Club (with100 member or less) with the most entries will receive $500 to be used towards their local club’s youth program.  If the winning club does not have a youth program they can use the funds to start one.

2.)  Texas Beekeeping Club with 101 member or more:
The entries in the Texas honey show will be counted and the Texas Beekeeping Club (with 101 member or more) with the most entries will receive $500 to be used towards their local club’s youth program.  If the winning club does not have a youth program they can use the funds to start one.

3.) Entry into one of the categories will include a spot in the group picture that will be used in a future calendar.  The photo will be taken at the convention.  Time and location will be made available when you register.

4.) We will have the people’s choice award again in the black jar competition as a part of our “Taste of the Texas Beekeeper”.  We will have a table with all the beeswax entries so that you will be able to “Smell Texas” from the prospective of the Texas Beekeeper.  A display of the winning photos will give you the “View of a Texas Beekeeper”
