Miss World Fiji finalist Esther Foss was crowned Miss Earth Fiji 2012 on Saturday night in Suva.
She will represent Fiji at Miss Earth in Manilla Philippines in November.
Kesa Kacilala was crowned Miss International Fiji and will represent the country at the Miss International pageant in Okinawa Japan in October.
National director for Miss Earth Fiji and Miss International Fiji Anshu Lata told FijiLive the message for Miss Earth was to promote environment issues including a green economy and sustainable energy.
Lata said Miss International will promote global partnership (goodwill and peace).
Foss is part-Indian and Fijian on her maternal side and part-American on her paternal side. She will compete with 113 countries to promote the environment.
Kacilala is of iTaukei origin and will represent Fiji with 100s of other countries in Japan to promote goodwill and peace.
Lata said both pageants will also promote Fijian culture.
The pageant drew 20 candidates in January and eleven finalists were selected after the elimination round in August.
After a private judging in early August, the organisers chose the top 5 contestants and the top 4 were finalised on Saturday.
Trishala Prasad and Preetisha Singh were the 1st runner up and 2nd runner up in the Miss International category.
Lata is hoping to get support from the public, government, and business houses to help the girls represent Fiji on the international front.
