The selection is made at the WHPA convention in November. Local honey queens who have served at least 6 months are eligible to compete for the state title.  Candidates applying for the position are judged on an interview, scrapbook as a local honey queen, essay, marketing presentation, and interaction with attendees while at the convention.
