Team Canada - Int'l Meeting of Young Beekeepers

In July of this year, three young beekeepers from Ontario and British
Columbia will be traveling to Ivančna Gorica, Slovenia to represent
Canada at the 12th annual International Meeting of Young Beekeepers
(IMYB). They, along with participants from up to 40 other countries
will be testing their beekeeping knowledge and learning about
beekeeping in other countries. This is a once in a lifetime
opportunity for these youth to represent their country at an
international event.

The IMYB started in 2010 in the Czech Republic and has become the
largest international meeting for young beekeepers worldwide. The
competition consists of several practical as well as academic
disciplines and it tests the knowledge and skills of young
participants. However, the goal of the meetings is not just the
competition itself, but mainly to motivate young beekeepers, promote
the idea of beekeeping among them as well as to provide them with
social and cultural experience.

The members of Team Canada include a young beekeeper from British
Columbia and two young beekeepers from Ontario. The three
participants will be traveling with two chaperones. The estimated cost
for this trip, including the team registration fee and travel, is
approximately $12,000.

All funds will be used to support the team (registration fees, and any/all travel costs for 3 team members and 2 chaperones)
