The American Beekeeping Federation is proud to announce that Lucy Winn was selected as the 2022 American Honey Queen at the American Beekeeping Federation Conference and Tradeshow in Las Vegas, Nevada. Lucy is the 20-year-old daughter of Stephen and Lauren Winn of Carlisle, Pennsylvania. She is a sophomore at DeSales University where she studies business management and marketing. Her family keeps backyard beehives, which sparked her passion for beekeeping. At school, Lucy tutors local students in math. In her free time, Lucy loves to read, throw pottery, walk her dog, and keep bees.
Prior to being selected as the American Honey Queen, Lucy served as the 2020 and 2021 Pennsylvania Honey Queen. In this role, she promoted the honey industry in schools, through farmers markets, fairs, festivals, and media interviews.
Lucy will spend the next year promoting the beekeeping industry throughout the United States in a wide variety of venues, including fairs, festivals, schools, media interviews, and virtual presentations.
