2024 Little Sisters Program 
"Lil' Rhody Anchors

“Mentoring Today's Children to Become Leaders of Tomorrow”


The Lil' Rhody Anchors Program is designed to introduce children, ages 3 through 12 years of age, to the Miss Rhode Island and Miss Rhode Island's Teen Programs.   It allows them to work closely with the Rhode Island delegates who, through their many community service opportunities throughout the year. Our program encourages the participating children to be the best person they can be, have fun, pursue their dreams, and provides them a positive introduction to the amazing and talented Miss Rhode Island and Miss Rhode Island’s Teen delegates. Ultimately, the Lil’ Rhody Anchors is a fundraising endeavor to increase scholarship awards for our delegates who are striving to reach their educational goals.

How to Become a Lil’ Rhody Anchor


1) Our delegates can select the young ladies that they wish to have as their Lil’ Rhody Anchor. Each delegate will be required to have at least one Lil’ Rhody Anchor. Girls should be selected immediately so that the delegate can begin mentoring them well before this year’s competitions.

2) We will also accept applications At-Large, and match Lil’ Rhody Anchors with delegates. This allows families to register a child without being asked by a delegate.

***The deadline for applications for any Lil’ Rhody Anchor is March 9, 2024, if they wish to participate in the coronation ceremony on April 7, 2024. Further applications will be accepted until March 31, 2024.
