2022 Illiana Watermelon Queen Gabby German

Each year we hold our Illiana Watermelon Queen Contest at our annual Watermelon Convention.  The winner of this year’s 32nd Annual Illiana Queen Pageant is Miss Gabby German.  Gabby is from Crystal Lake, Illinois and is studying Marketing at Illinois State University. After receiving training in Orlando, Florida with the National Watermelon Promotion Board, she will be busy attending the various promotions throughout the country.

We would love to visit your special occasion or promotion.  To book a promotion, call Lana Brothers, our promotions coordinator at 314-724-6305 or email her here.

Our thanks to all the contestants who participated in this year’s competition. Any one of the contestants would have made a fine representative for the Association!
