2020 American Honey Princess Sydnie Paulsrud

Sydnie Paulsrud, the 2020 American Honey Princess, will visit Georgia October 27-31. She will make appearances throughout the community during her stay, speaking to youth and adults about how honeybees amplify agriculture through pollination. She will also teach about how honey varieties dazzle multiple senses by creating cooking with honey recipe videos with University of Georgia county Extension agents. Additionally, she will be a guest of the Hahira Farmers Market & Friends of the Farmer on October 31st.

Sydnie is the 20-year-old daughter of Thea Weinberger of Eau Claire, WI, and Jack Paulsrud of Augusta, WI. Prior to serving as a spokesperson for the beekeeping and honey industry, she studied childcare services in college. Hailing from Chippewa Falls, WI, Sydnie also works for DHL-Fleet Farm Distribution Center.

As the 2020 American Honey Princess, Sydnie serves as a national spokesperson on behalf of the American Beekeeping Federation, a trade organization representing beekeepers and honey producers throughout the United States. The American Honey Queen and Princess speak and promote in venues nationwide, and, as such Princess Sydnie will travel and speak throughout the United States in 2020.

The beekeeping industry touches the lives of every individual in our country. In fact, honeybees are responsible for nearly one-third of our entire diet, in regards to the pollination services that they provide for a large majority of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes. This amounts to nearly $19 billion per year of direct value from honeybee pollination to United States agriculture.
