National Watermelon Queen Program

Katelyn Honeycutt, of Angier, North Carolina, was crowned 2019 National Watermelon Queen at the annual convention in February in Waikoloa, Hawai'i. Katie will represent the National Watermelon Association at promotional events throughout the year as our ambassador, encouraging the consumption and sales of watermelon. 


Queen Tour

The National Watermelon Queen Tour is part of the overall promotional effort of the National Watermelon Association to increase sales.
The National Watermelon Queen is selected annually. The competition takes place in conjunction with the annual National Watermelon Association’s convention.

She spends the year traveling to cities all over the nation, and often into Canada, talking to people in supermarkets, at fairs and festivals, telling everyone about the nutritional benefits, and economical values of watermelon.
The Queen is available for media appearances, in store promotions, fairs, festivals or functions where watermelon is featured.
