The 70th annual Mississippi Miss Hospitality Competition has expanded with program upgrades and the addition of the Little Miss Hospitality program. The competition will take place at the Historic Hattiesburg Saenger Theater in Downtown Hattiesburg on July 26 and 27 at 8 p.m. each evening.
In its 22nd year as host city, Hattiesburg will showcase this year’s best and brightest young women as they compete for the title of Mississippi’s Miss Hospitality. Thirty-one women, who represent all regions of the state, will vie for the title of Mississippi’s Miss Hospitality, with the winner serving for a full year as the state’s official ambassador for economic development and tourism.
Over two nights of on-stage competition, the women will present commercials on their hometown, answer questions on hospitality and tourism, and show off their dance moves and evening gowns, all while earning college scholarship dollars.
