Miss ECO Teen International is an international beauty contest, aiming to empower youth, create self-awareness and make an impact, all under an environmental theme.

The event brings together teens from all over the world. Its main goal is to choose the next Teen Queen to serve as the voice representing teenagers worldwide while promoting environmental responsibility.
