Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 29)— Lindsey Coffey of the United States was crowned as this year's Miss Earth winner, while the Philippines' bet Roxanne Baeyens clinched the Miss Earth Water title in a virtual pageant held on Sunday.

In her acceptance speech, the country's representative expressed gratitude to the Miss Earth organization for letting her and her fellow beauty queens "find power" in their voices to promote their respective advocacies.

"I'm just so grateful for the entire experience and of course, to the Miss Earth organization for making us find power in our voices to continue our advocacy during these trying times, where the world needs it the most," Baeyens said.
