Miss Hospitality to be crowned in Hattiesburg Saturday night

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Mississippi's Miss Hospitality 2013 will be crowned in Hattiesburg Saturday night during the finals of the annual pageant at the Saenger Theater.

On Friday evening, 39 contestants from across the state competed in the preliminary competition, which featured the little black dress-commercial and evening gown competitions.

Earlier in the day, each contestant presented a 90-second speech to judges. Winners of that portion of the pageant were Hailey Thomas of Meridian, Ivey Swan of Hattiesburg and Olivia Battle of Panola County.

Miss Hospitality represents Mississippi at various tourism and economic development events inside and outside the state.

The pageant has been held in Hattiesburg for the last 16 years.
