Congratulations to our winners in the 2016 Watermelon Growing Contest!

  1. Jacob Gravitt , Turner County - 139 pounds
  2. Dylan Gravitt , Turner County - 126 pounds
  3. Kellee Alday, Seminole County - 115 pounds

Final weights must be registered by Friday, August 5. County agents must use event registration to register 4-H’ers and enter watermelon weight. The heaviest watermelon will then be named and awards determined. Each 4-H’er must grow his or her own watermelon and have it weighed by their County Extension Office to be eligible. Pictures will be required for the top three state awards. Additional photos may be used for other promotional purposes, so please make sure to get a photo of your 4-H’er with their watermelon.

NOTE: Certification forms are no longer necessary. All weights will be entered through event registration

A special thank you to The Georgia Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association along with the Georgia Watermelon Association for their continuous support with the Georgia 4-H Watermelon Growing Contest. The state winner will receive $100. The second and third place winners will receive $50 and $25. The first 50 counties to certify a winner will receive a Georgia 4-H Watermelon Contest T-shirt for the top watermelon grower in their county. If 50 counties do not submit entries, the first 50 entries will receive t-shirts.
