ANNOUNCING THE SECOND ANNUAL METRO BEEKEEPERS ASSOCIATION YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP
MBA Hill/Stokes Memorial Youth Scholarship
Applications have been extended to December 10th 2012
The art of beekeeping is being encouraged through a 2013 youth scholarship program. The Metro Beekeepers Association is willing to work with young people to not only teach the the hobby, but to educate them as well on the industry as a whole.
The scholarship is for youth between the ages of 10 and 18 who are residents of Tarrant, Johnson, Parker and Ellis counties and enrolled in public, private or home school. The program provides all the equipment necessary for the recipient(s) to become a hobbyist beekeeper. Recipient(s) will receive an orientation and/or a book on beginning beekeeping, have a mentor, and get to have their own hive to learn from and take care of during the process. The direct mentor-ship and close supervision lasts one year, which is long enough to ensure the student(s) has had enough time to be on their own in the hobby. Upon successful completion of the scholarship requirements, the recipient(s) will receive a recognition certificate and full ownership of the hive.
