The 2013 Alabama Watermelon Queen was crowned at the annual Alabama Watermelon Association Convention in Biloxi. Contestants compete in interview, video interview, and question, speech, sports-ware, and evening gown on stage. The recipient of the title receives scholarship money and is a public relations representative for the Alabama Watermelon Association.
The 2013 title went to Miss Jordan Skipper of Ashford, Alabama. She is the nineteen year old daughter of Billy and Tammy Skipper. Jordan is a 2012 graduate of Ashford High School and is currently a sophomore at Chipola College. She is planning to graduate with a degree in Early Childhood Special and Exceptional Education.
This year Jordan will represent the Alabama Watermelon Association, sharing her knowledge on the nutritional benefits and versatility of watermelon. She will travel throughout the state visiting schools, farms, farmers' markets, televisions stations, grocery stores, and watermelon festivals. Once her reign is complete she will compete for the 2014 National Watermelon Queen title in Savannah, Georgia where she will have the opportunity to share the watermelon message throughout the United States and abroad.
