Honey Queen

I am Maia Jaycox, the 2017 American Honey Queen. I am from Iowa, and I attend Iowa State University, looking toward a biology major. I am a newly initiated member to Kappa Alpha Theta at Iowa State and I really enjoy all the opportunities it was brought me. I have been a beekeeper for about four years, and I'm really looking forward to serving the beekeeping industry this year.

As the American Honey Queen, I am a spokesperson for the American Beekeeping Federation, the national organization for beekeepers. I travel across the United States promoting beekeeping, educating the public, and representing the over 200,000 beekeepers in the United States. The American Honey Princess, Hope Pettibon, and I are working very hard this year to promote honey, and we would love to be able to come talk at your school or other special events! I'd love to answer any questions you have about honeybees or beekeeping. Simply submit your question under the Questions tab of the blog or email me at buzzingacrossamerica@gmail.com.
