(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Several St. Joseph schools buzzed with excitement Wednesday afternoon.

The 2013 American Honey Princess traveled to St. Joseph to educate kids on the importance of honey bees.

Emily Campbell travels 225 days a year to 25 to 30 states to promote honey bees.
 
You can find her buzzing around schools, fairs, festivals, and farmers markets.
   
One fun fact she shared is that it takes 12 honey bees their entire lifetime to make one teaspoon of honey.

"Honey bees are kinda in trouble right now, and we're trying to bring an awareness to whats going on with them and also how important they are to our everyday life. That's really my job, just educating and making sure that people know the impact they have on our life's," said American Honey Princess Emily Campbell

There are more than 300 unique varieties of honey produced in the U.S. alone, and tupelo honey is the Honey Princess's favorite.
