Brazil’s Larissa Ramos Wins Miss Earth Title

BORACAY, Philippines – Brazil’s Larissa Ramos was crowned Miss Earth in the international beauty competition held Sunday in the Philippines with contestants from about 80 countries vying for the title.

The 20-year-old Larissa was born in Manaus, the capital of the northern Brazilian state of Amazonas.

Taking second place, and thus receiving the title Miss Earth-Air, was Filipino Sandra Seifert, while third place was won by Venezuela’s Jessica Barboza, a 22-year-old from Maracaibo, who received the Miss Earth-Water title.

Spain’s Alejandra Echevarria, a 20-year-old student born in Andujar, took fourth place for the Miss Earth-Fire title.

“Beauties for a cause” is the slogan of the beauty contest, which has been held in the Philippines since 2001 with the aim of raising awareness about pollution of the environment and the effects of climate change.

The first place winner will receive $20,000 and will become the spokesperson for the Miss Earth Foundation, Inc., and for the United Nations environmental program.
