Amber Dawn Butler, Miss Maryland Earth United States 2018


One fun fact about you: 

Most people don't know that I am an actress and model and can do a perfect imitation of Elmo!

Tell us about your platform. 

My platform is Ocean Sustainability. At six years old I saw a killer whale at SeaWorld and was plastered to the glass for an hour. I've been hooked on the ocean since that moment. I finished my graduate degree in Marine Ecosystems & Policy and now teach middle school science and volunteer for mentorship and STEM programs. Beach cleanups are my absolute favorite. I'm not afraid to throw on a wetsuit and dive right in, literally, to clean up our environment.

What are you looking forward to at Miss Earth United States?

I am looking forward to showing the judges my bold fashion choices that I have made! I can't wait for them to see my swimwear and gown. My swimwear is very practical and is something I would actually wear to work in and clean up our oceans. Be sure to get tickets to the pageant so you can see it too!

What is something you can’t live without and why?

I can't live without lip balm or lipgloss. I must have hydrated, healthy lips at all times!

Something interesting about me is that I am a competitive ballroom and Latin dancer! I’ve been dancing since I was nine and I’ve been blessed to have placed first locally, regionally, and nationally! Dance allows me to be my creative and artistic self.

One fun fact about you:

I played soccer once against the world-renowned female soccer player, Marta, in Brazil.

Tell us about your platform.

I am currently involved in working to promote Johns Hopkins’ sustainability and outreach initiatives. With climate change currently being one of the most pressing environmental concerns globally, I’ve committed my reign to my platform "GreenWave: A Movement Toward Global Environmental Awareness." I currently use my title to promote environmental education in schools and business, and awareness of climate change through sustainable practices in the workplace and home.

I am partnering with The Waterfront Partnership, Healthy Harbor, Blue Water Baltimore, and Baltimore’s City Council to help organize and participate in tree plantings, and harbor and city cleanups. I am also involved with The Baltimore Station where we work with homeless veterans, and Beans and Bread, a local soup kitchen. I hope to help more with fundraising events and efforts for these organizations.

What are you looking forward to at Elite Miss Earth United States?

Meeting my new friends and family... I want to learn as much as I can from my sister queens… It’s such an amazing opportunity to be surrounded by so many vibrant, intelligent women who are willing to help you.

What is something you can’t live without and why?

My water bottle... I take that thing everywhere! Water and staying hydrated is what fuels me, gives me energy, and is definitely a huge part of my beauty repertoire!

Ashley Smith, Elite Miss West Coast Earth United States 2018


One fun fact about you:

I enjoy Trick Riding on horses! I have a really good and natural connection to horses, which is probably why I feel confident doing stunts on them. I love to creatively express myself on them. My favorite show to watch people do all sorts of stunts and especially Trick Riding is "Cavalia." It's so beautiful, inspiring and spirit lifting - how they tell a story between man and horse!

Tell us about your platform.

My platform is "Freezing Forest Fires," I believe if we can mitigate climate change, we can reduce wildfire risks and reduce carbon emissions; climate change is playing a role in longer, hotter fire seasons, causing larger wildfires.

My advocacy, with the help of social media and public appearance, is to shed light on our environment and Wildland Firefighters. As a former Wildland Firefighter, I know the heavy risk that Wildland Firefighters put their lives through to save the people, homes and our environment.

Unfortunately, there is not enough governmental support in medical and mental health rehabilitation for WFF. Due to PTSD, there is an increasing number of suicides in the WFF community and they need our support, as they protect us and our environment.

What are you looking forward to at Elite Miss Earth United States?

I am really looking forward to meeting the delegates! I really want to be present and just enjoy the process, and all of the fun environmental activities, because I know how fast pageants fly, and the best memories come from experiences, you are most present in.

What is something you can't live without and why? 

Well aside from God, I really can't live without my phone. I know it's sad but it's the truth. I literally feel like I am stuck stranded in the middle of nowhere without it. I think this is a reality of a lot of people today. It's sad and kind of funny at the same time.

Jadyn Fraser, Teen Miss Alaska Earth United States 2018


One fact about you: 

I can cross both of my eyes at the same time, I can cross one at a time, and, believe it or not, I can even make them vibrate!

Tell us about your platform.

My platform is based on telling people in my community the things they can do in their daily lives to reduce their carbon footprint. I explain that they can bring reusable bags to the store, bring reusable straws to all the coffee stands we thrive off of here in Alaska, and how we have 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic in our oceans and counting.

I do my part by explaining there are simple ways they can contribute to make a huge difference and reduce their carbon footprint!

What are you looking forward to at Teen Miss Earth United States?

What I'm looking forward to most is meeting with the wonderful delegates and staff! We've all been talking for months leading up to nationals and we're all so close already, I can't wait to finally meet them and share this amazing experience in D.C with them!

What is something you can't live without?

Something I can't live without is, well other than water and oxygen, is my mom. She pushes me to be the best version of myself and I love and appreciate her more than anyone! Truly an amazing woman whom I look up to in every aspect of my lfe.

One fun fact about you:

On my bucket list is to go cage diving with Great White Sharks.

Tell us about your platform.

I am an ecowarrior through and through.

Both my platform and my future career are centered on cleaning up our oceans from plastic pollution.  Every year 16 billion pounds of plastic garbage is dumped into the oceans, which kills marine life, makes fish carcinogenic, and makes people sick. This trash also increases the acidification of the oceans making them less capable of removing carbon from our atmosphere and threatens ocean-based food chains.

I am advocating for the reduction of single-use plastics around the world. I am working to change the way people, companies, and government think about plastic.

What are you looking forward to at Teen Miss Earth United States?

I look forward to meeting the directors and sponsors to thank them in person. I can't wait to meet the other Beauties for a Cause and make new lifelong friends! I am also excited to finally participate in the various competitions and hopefully, take home the national title!

What is something you can't live without and why?

My beauty sleep, clean water, and chocolate!

Amorelle Upton, Teen Miss North Dakota Earth United States 2018


One fun fact about you:

One fun fact about me is that my parents have always pushed me to be my best from early on, so much so that I was walking and talking in about 9 months.

Tell us about your platform.

My platform focuses on two things that humans would have difficulty surviving without and that our environment would fail without.

My motto is "Plant the trees, Save the bees." As many people could guess, the trees in our forests, backyards, school courtyards, and businesses actually have a purpose. They provide oxygen for us to breathe, make our air cooler than it normally would be, and multiple other important purposes.

However, if we continue to see deforestation occur and not rebuild it or save it, our lives could change tremendously. The same situation would happen with the bees, if we don’t conserve them, our main source of pollination is gone and our food sources are greatly harmed.

What are you looking forward to at Teen Miss Earth United States?

I’m most looking forward to meeting all the girls and getting to make memories with them. This is an opportunity that I will remember forever and am so grateful for.

What is something you can’t live without and why? 

Something I can’t live without is music. No matter what mood I am in, whether it be mad, stressed, happy, sad, music will always cool me down or put me in an even better mood.

Taylor Burk, Miss Nevada Earth United States 2018


One fun fact about you:

One fun fact about me is that I write in the horror genre.

Tell us about your platform.

As Miss Nevada Earth my platform is H.E.M.P- Helping Educate Misinformed People. Thomas Jefferson stated, "Hemp is the first necessity to the wealth and protection of our country" and I agree.

Hemp is the only plant that can feed us, house us, clothe us, and heal us. It is an immensely profitable crop that could provide a huge boost to the local economy, to the job sector, and to the health of the U.S citizens. After laws farming hemp have recently been lifted, the United States will now have the opportunity to make over 50,000 eco-friendly hemp products that are free from destructive protocol to our planet. Replacing synthetics with hemp alternatives will be the end of a destructive era as hemp can be plastic, paper, clothing, rope made of the most durable fiber on the planet, industrial material to build houses, the protein with the highest omegas, natural healing medication, makeup and even biofuel for hemp cars!

"I don't know if hemp is going to save the world, but it's the only thing that can." -Jack Herer


What are you looking forward to at Miss Earth United States?

I realized that all things ying and yang, pleasure and pain all serve a purpose in a healthy universe and ecosystem. Everything in my life- every insult, wound, struggle, heartbreak, joy, miracle, smile and good vibe ever thought has led and prepared me for this moment.

I am going to be fully present and enjoy it! I look forward to celebrating my personal growth.

What is something you can’t live without and why? 

I can not live without books. Books give us the opportunity to plunge deeper into life. It is a gift we can open again and again and always find something new.

One fun fact about you:

I love to bake! Especially cupcakes! Cupcakes to me are like a mini canvas, simple and elegant, and of course so yummy to eat!!

Tell us about your platform.

I actually have 2 platforms.

Before being Miss Minnesota Earth 2018, I shared about the dangers of drinking and driving, and the story of Drake Bigler with his parents' permission of course.

After becoming Miss MN Earth 2018, I partnered with my local Cans for Kids organization to help collect cans to donate to our local recycling center for a donation which goes to community activities such as adult bingo prizes at the nursing home, Easter Eggs hunts, mission trips and fun things like that - locally in our community.

What are you looking forward to at Miss Earth United States?

Honestly, I’m looking forward to the experience! I can’t wait to visit DC and learn and see the history there. Meeting all the national staff and other State delegates are easily at the top of my list also!

I am so excited!

What is something you can’t live without and why? 

Aside from the essentials of my faith, family, friends, pets, oxygen, water, etc. I cannot live without blankets! Seriously! I am ALWAYS cold! I think I have at least 30 blankets in our house (of 2 people & pets)! Oops!

One fun fact about you:

One fun fact about me is that I know American Sign Language. It's fun to sign because it's like a secret language and it always makes me talk with my hands.

Tell us about your platform.

Platform: "Change the Ocean with 4Ocean"

My platform is 4Ocean, a business where employees from all over the world travel from coastline to coastline and some scuba dive to pick up trash; they then create the recycled material into bracelets.

By purchasing the 4Ocean bracelets, you will remove one pound of trash from ocean and coastlines. The beads on the bracelet are all 100 per cent recycled glass material. And the cord is 100 per cent polyester recycled materials, as well. They have events from around the world that you can find on Facebook to help clean up and join the 4Ocean movement. They also have limited edition bracelets for their monthly causes dedicated to ocean life where they help researchers find ways to save marine life such as sea turtles.

I've been working with them as an influencer, photographer and a blogger to help spread awareness.

What are you looking forward to at Elite Miss Earth United States?

I love meeting people that are on the same mission as me in saving the Earth.

What is something you can’t live without and why? 

One thing I can't live without is my pretty pink glass water bottle because I can just refill it and not use plastic bottles.

PageantLIVE Red Carpet Highlight: April Maroshick, Miss New York Earth United States 2018



April Maroshick, Miss New York Earth United States 2018


One fun fact about you:

I feel as though I have a mental reference book. I can recite the alphabet backwards, the States in alphabetical order, all of the State capitals, point out every State on a map and just random fun things like that!

Tell us about your platform.

My platform is based around Holistic health. Although I work in internal medicine, I think it’s really important that the patients I work with transition from traditional to alternative medicine.

In my opinion and experience, nothing heals better than the earth's natural resources. Nothing also feels better than feeling in control of your physical and mental health by having alternative medicine at your fingertips.

What are you looking forward to at Miss Earth United States?

Well for starters, Washington D.C. is my favorite American city. I always feel an extra sense of patriotism when exploring there. It’s also a patriotic time of year. I think most importantly though, being able to showcase who I am and what I have to offer the Miss Earth Organization is the most thrilling.

What is something you can’t live without and why? 

Aside from the obvious, like God, family, oxygen, and food... I can’t live without books. I have learned most of what I know through reading. Reading is such an incredibly useful source to gain knowledge, perspective and broaden your horizons on just about anything.

To me, the library is the entire world condensed into words on paper right at my fingertips.

One fun fact about you: 

I have played soccer since I was five years old and now I am playing it at a collegiate level.

Tell us about your platform.

My platform is “Plant the seeds, Save the Trees.”

I focus on replenishing the trees in the environment because while trees give us many important resources like paper for books and lumber for homes, it is so important to make sure we put back what we take.

I not only want to plant tree seedlings, but I want to plant seeds of encouragement in people about environmental issues. I hope that those people will then plant seeds of encouragement in people that they meet, and we will have hundreds of new Earth warriors!

What are you looking forward to at Miss Earth United States?

I am looking forward to the evening gown competition at Miss Earth United States because you get to see the personality of each delegate shine through their evening gown selection. Also, I am looking forward to the public speaking portion because I love hearing what other delegates are passionate about.

What is one thing you can’t live without and why?

I can’t live without chocolate ice cream. It is my guilty pleasure and I once ate half a gallon in one sitting!
