The Mississippi Miss Hospitality Competition added a new element in 2018: Little Miss Hospitality. The Little Miss program is designed for Miss Hospitality contestants to serve as mentors to young ladies in their communities, who are ages 6-10 years old. Upon being crowned a local representative, each contestant will choose a Little Miss from her hometown/county to share her journey. The Little Miss’ name should be given to the State Office no later than March 27, 2020.
The registration fee for each Little Miss Hospitality is $250, which should be provided by the Little Miss’ family and/or a local sponsor. Little Miss packets and fees are due by May 29, 2020. Little Miss Hospitalites are required to be in Hattiesburg on Friday and Saturday for on-stage programming and events. They are asked to wear a white gown on stage.
If a Little Miss Hospitality cannot be identified in the area represented by a local Miss Hospitality, contestants may select a young girl from other areas of the state. Contact the State Office with any questions.
