NC State Fair! Oct 14-24, 2021

Our club’s booth won the Blue Ribbon!!

The theme was Swarm Story. Our goal was to educate the public about swarms- what they are, why they happen, and what to do. We also demonstrated what the temperature sensors and scales show during a swarm. The backdrop for the booth was a photo of the swarm that happened while we were at the apiary one Saturday in the spring. QR codes on the display panels attached to the railing gave links for videos and more details about the sensors.

Also, many of the items within the booth also won ribbons for a total of 22! Congratulations to everyone who entered and thank you for contributing your time, energy, interest, and items to help make it a winning year.
