Honey Princess

My name is Virginia Allen, and I am the 2021 American Honey Princess. I am from Texas, where I am working toward my bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership from University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. My hobbies include rock climbing and backpacking with my family, volunteering at church, and serving as an active leader in the local Fire Explorers program.


As the 2021 American Honey Princess, I travel across the country to teach students, 4-H groups, and fair-goers about the importance of honeybees and pollination in our everyday lives. I also attend many different events such as fairs, festivals, and farmers markets and have interviews with tv, radio, and newspapers. To find out if the American Honey Queen or Princess can visit your school or community, please visit the American Beekeeping Federation website. You can ask me a question on the Questions tab of the blog or email me at buzzingacrossamerica@gmail.com.
