Bee Maid Honey Limited Awards Fiftieth Anniversary Scholarship

Western Canada’s largest honey packer awards Scholarship to Manitoba student

Winnipeg, MB  April 20, 2015 -  Bee Maid Honey Limited recently awarded a $1000 scholarship to a deserving student.  The Bee Maid Fiftieth Anniversary Scholarship was created in 2004 to commemorate the formation of Bee Maid Honey Limited in 1954.  The annual Scholarship is designed to stimulate the pursuit of excellence by rewarding outstanding achievement by the children and grandchildren of Bee Maid’s co-op members and staff as they enter post-secondary study.

Applicants were selected based on academic achievement in the previous year, evidence of community involvement and a 300-500 word essay on a topic related to agriculture.

The scholarship awards are testament to Bee Maid Honey’s commitment to its members and staff.  The Scholarship committee is pleased to announce that the 2015 recipient is Paige Lecocq from Winnipeg, Manitoba.  Paige is graduating from College Jeanne-Sauvé and is entering the University of Winnipeg in the fall, with plans of studying Linguistics and French. She is interested in furthering her education beyond her Bachelor’s degree, with hopes to obtain a Masters in Speech-Language Pathology.

An essay question is part of the application process and Paige’s essay was “Healthy Hives is the Future” exploring threats to the honeybee and the importance of hive health.

Her winning essay can be found at www.beemaid.com, by clicking About Bee Maid and selecting Press News Archive.
