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 in November of each year.
The procedure is much like a standard spelling bee, with one major difference – each word must be defined and spelled. The Agribee promotes agriculture education in schools and gives students a rewarding opportunity to learn about California agriculture.
The winner of the Agribee Finals receives a Chromebook and a special, agriculture focused field trip for the student’s class.
Agribee Finals will be held on Friday, November 17, 2023. To register a class to participate in Agribee 2023 please fill out the online registration or you may print the packet and mail it to Butte County Farm Bureau at PO Box 360 in Durham, CA 95938. For any questions or for further information please email Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (530)533-1473.
