2020 North Carolina Watermelon Queen

Watermelon Queen 2020 - Sarah Swain


Miss Sarah Swain was crowned as the 2020 North Carolina Watermelon Queen during the North Carolina Watermelon Association's first ever virtual pageant held on April 26, 2020.  For the first time in history, the North Carolina Watermelon Association Convention was postponed due to the Covid 19 outbreak but the association worked diligently to crown a 2020 Queen. 

Sarah is the 22 year old daughter of Annie Swain of Morehead City, NC.  She is a 2020 graduate of Mount Olive University with a degree in Agriculture Education.  Her future plan is to teach high school agriculture in North Carolina while earning a Masters Degree in administration.  Sarah has served as the North Carolina State FFA Vice President and as a North Carolina Teach Ag Ambassador.  As an ambassador her charge was to help encourage students to pursue a career in Agriculture Education. Sarah enjoys working with students and volunteering in her community.  She was very active in the Mount Olive Collegiate FFA and has been on the Dean's list each semester. 

As North Carolina Watermelon Queen, Sarah will serve as the spokesperson for the North Carolina watermelon industry all across the state.  Sarah will hold the state title for one year and in February 2021 will represent North Carolina for the title of National Watermelon Queen at the National Watermelon Association Convention in Las Vegas, NV.
