2020 Georgia Watermelon Queen


Lindsey Westberry

The Georgia Watermelon Queen Tour is part of the overall promotional effort of the Georgia Watermelon Association to increase sales. The Georgia Watermelon Queen is selected annually as an AMBASSADOR for the watermelon industry. The competition takes place in conjunction with the Georgia Watermelon Association Annual Meeting.

The Queen spends the year traveling to cities throughout Georgia and the nation, talking to people in supermarkets, at fairs and festivals, telling everyone about the nutritional benefits, and economical values of watermelon.  At the end of her reign, the GWA Queen will compete for the title of National Watermelon Queen at the NWA Annual Meeting & Convention.

Ms. Lindsey Westberry is our 2020 GWA Queen.  Meredith is the 19 year old daughter of David and Diane Westberry.  Lindsey is from Naylor, GA and attends Georgia Military College where she is majoring in Agricultural Communications. 

The Queen is available for media appearances, in-store promotions, fairs, festivals or functions where watermelon is featured. For more information contact Dawn Cheplick, GWA Promotion Coordinator, or call the GWA office at 706-845-8575.

The 2021 GWA Queen competition will be held on January 29-31, 2021 at the King & Prince Resort on St. Simons Island in conjunction with the Georgia Watermelon Annual Meeting.
