One of the amazing girls in our ward has just completed her second Honor Bee! That is the award the girls can earn after they’ve earned their Young Womanhood Recognition award. Earning an Honor Bee is a great way for those girls who complete their Personal Progress quickly to stay engaged and who need something more to do.
Instructions for earning an Honor Bee are in the back of the Personal Progress book and consist of re-reading the Book of Mormon and performing 40 hours of service for others. The girls are encouraged to help other Young Women complete their Personal Progress.
Once an Honor Bee is earned, the young woman is presented with a bee charm to add to their medallion necklace. And, girls can earn as many Honor Bees as they want!
When our cute young woman let us know she had earned her Honor Bee, I went looking for an accompanying certificate to give her. Surprise! The Church does not have one! So, I made my own and share it with you.
NOTE: I’ve updated the download to include ward, stake and branch versions of the certificate AND included BONUS clipart for you to use!
My file is designed to complement the other Personal Progress certificates and features a honey-bee watermark and a beehive graphic. It is the standard 8.5×11-inches in size. There is a place to add the recipient’s name, ward and stake as well as the date and Bishop’s and Young Women’s President’s signatures.
To make it easy for you to fill out my Honor Bee certificate, I’ve created an editable/saveable PDF file for you. Simply open the file in Adobe Reader, enter your information, save and print on your printer’s highest-quality setting! Easy! If you don’t have the latest version of Adobe Reader, you can download it for free here. I highly recommend you DO NOT click the box that says “Yes, Install McAffe Security Scan Plus.” You don’t need it.
If you want to handwrite the information on the certificate, I’ve included a high-quality JPEG file for you. Just print using your printer’s highest-quality setting and you’re ready to go.
NOTE: I’ve updated the download to include ward, stake and branch versions of the certificate.
