Miss Earth USA (formerly Miss Earth United States) is an annual beauty pageant which selects the United States representative to Miss Earth which is an annual international beauty pageant promoting environmental awareness.
In January 2016, owners of Miss Earth, Carousel Productions, Inc., announced, through their official Facebook fan page, that the Miss Earth United States program would be managed by U.S. Earth Productions, Inc. under the leadership of national director Laura Clark.
The United States delegates in Miss Earth from 2001–2005 were selected by the Ms. America International pageant where the prize was to represent the United States at the Miss Earth Pageant.
In 2005, Earth Pageant Productions acquired the rights to conduct the national competition for the United States and to select a national winner to participate in the Miss Earth pageant. Thus, a national pageant was established to conduct the annual Miss Earth United States pageant.
Miss Earth United States represents the United States in the annual Miss Earth pageant. The pageant adopted the slogan "Continuing the Legacy of Beauty and Responsibility". The pageant focused mainly on promoting environmental causes and winners are chosen equally on their physical attributes as well as their understanding and knowledge of the issues affecting the Earth.
In order to bring more awareness to the cause, and to provide the next generation an opportunity to get involved, a teen division was added in 2008. The winner of the pageant, held in conjunction with the Miss Earth United States pageant, was awarded the title of Miss Teen Earth United States. As a result, the pageant became known as the US Earth pageants.
Andrea Neu, the Miss Earth United States 2014, is so far the highest ranking American delegate as she finished as Miss Earth - Air (First runner-up) at Miss Earth 2014 since its inception in 2001.
This list includes all the Miss Earth United States winners even from the previous license holders.
