Recently I was honored to judge the GA state Watermelon Pageant held at St. Simon’s Island GA. The newly crowned Queen is 21 year old Meredith McGlamory from Abbeville, GA currently attending Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College majoring in Agricultural Communications. The crowning took place on Jan 26 at Georgia’s annual watermelon convention.
We have been hosting Watermelon Queens since 2006 and this is the 10th time I have been invited to judge. Colemans is well known in the watermelon industry as we were the first to bring a Watermelon Queen to the east coast of Canada. The girls are always eager to visit our lovely province to promote watermelon to children and adults. We congratulate the very beautiful Miss Meredith McGlamory and look forward to her visit to NL.
