The Agribee™ is a define and spell bee, using agriculturally related words, for fourth and fifth grade students. The program is currently available to schools in Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Sutter, Tehama and Yuba Counties in California.
Each participating school organizes a school-wide Agribee and identifies two finalists who compete in a regionally hosted Agribee Finals on November 16th at the Patrick Ranch Museum in Durham, California. Each participating school organizes a school-wide Agribee and identifies two finalists who compete in a regionally hosted Agribee Finals.
The procedure is much like a standard spelling bee, with one major difference – each word must be defined and spelled. It promotes agriculture education in schools and gives students a rewarding opportunity to learn about the agriculture all around them.
The winner of the Agribee Finals receives a laptop computer and a special, agriculture focused field trip for the student’s class. The 2016 winning student’s class toured AVAG, Inc. an agriculture aviation company where they learned about planes and helicopters and their uses in agriculture. They also got to climb in and sit in a helicopter.
Agribee Finals will be held on Friday, November 19th . The location is to be determined. To register a class to participate in Agribee 2021 please fill out the online registration or you may print the packet and mail it to Butte Farm Bureau at PO Box 360 in Durham, CA 95938.
