Order of announcement[edit]


Pageant activities and preliminary rounds took place from August 2-6, 2017 in the Washington metropolitan area, which included a service day in Washington, D.C. with delegates from the Teen, Miss, and Elite divisions.

Additionally, delegates were scored on their social media activity leading up to the national pageant, as well as their environmental project that occurred in June for the organization's Think Local, Act Global initiative.

All phases of the pageant were available via livestream on the Miss Earth United States Facebook page.

During the final competition, the top 20 competed in runway, while the top 15 also competed in swimsuit, and the top ten in evening gown. The top four competed in an on-stage question round where they were scored on their response to what their legacy would be during their reign as Miss Earth United States.
