About Miss Earth Nigeria
Miss Earth Nigeria is an annual national beauty pageant in Nigeria to select its representative to the international Miss Earth pageant.The pageant, with the theme "Beauties for a Cause" is organized by AMC Productions, and began sending representatives to Miss Earth a year after the international pageant was established in 2001.
The president and national director of the pageant is Ibinabo Fiberesima,a pageant veteran who is now a Nollywood actress.
Originally, titleholders were winners and contestants of rival pageants Miss Commonwealth Nigeria (Vanessa Ibene Ekeke) and Miss Nigeria (Ewemade Ogbebor), until Miss Earth Nigeria became a pageant in its own right in 2004. The winner is expected to work in collaboration with environmentalist and state parastatals on how to make water safe, check erosion, pollution among others. The pageant also conducts road shows to educate people on the three R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle).
Nigeria produced its first Miss Earth semifinalist when Stacey Gavey entered in the top 16 in 2007, as did Uko Ezinne the following year.
