The mission of Miss Earth USA is to provide a platform for America's women to be a voice for environmental responsibility, while featuring these beauties for a cause in fashion, media and leadership opportunities.
Age divisions that progress to the international stage are 14-18 (Teen Miss), 18-26 (Miss), 21-59 (Mrs.) and 26-38 (Elite Miss). All competitive divisions are for female U.S. citizens. See below for further criteria. State titles are awarded to those invited to participate at the annual national competition, selected through application / appointed title or through a state pageant.
Additionally, some states offer local or state titles for Little Miss & Junior Miss Earth USA. This ambassador program provides young female leaders age 5-9 (Little Miss) and 10-14 (Junior Miss) with local or state titles, pageant mentorship, community service activities and the option to attend activities as our guest at the national pageant. These divisions do NOT include a national competition.
