Miss Rhode Island USA and Miss Rhode Island Teen USA results

Your ultimate state pageant resource

Did you know that the Miss USA state pageants used to be styled “Miss State Universe” until the end of the 1970s? And that the sashes didn’t add “Miss” until the mid 1980s? The state results pages have been an integral part of Pageant Update right from the beginning. I’ve now extended it, to bring you results back as far as the 1970s where available! This section includes lists of winners, runners-up, semi-finalists and award winners and a cache of historical pageant photos.
