Each summer, the NWPB sponsors a Watermelon Retail Merchandising Contest and invites all retail chains, independent retailers and commissaries to submit entries in honor of National Watermelon Month in July.

The contest, which ran through August, is used by NWPB to encourage and identify retailers who are showcasing watermelon’s benefits including health, value and versatility. 

“I’ve taken third place and honorable mention in the past, but I knew this year it was time to win this for our company,” Carroll said. 

The Shelby Report presented the winners in an article on Nov. 4. To read the full story, click here.
