Miss Earth 2002 Winfred Adah Omwakwe, 22, of Kenya will crown her successor at the University of the Philippines Theater in Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines on November 9, 2003. It will be the third edition of the international beauty pageant focused on environmental issues.

Miss Earth was formally launched on April 3, 2001. It was organized by Carousel Productions, an organization based in the Philippines.

Omwakwe was runner-up to Džejla Glavović, 20, of Bosnia and Herzegovina, who was crowned Miss Earth 2002 at the Folk Arts Theater in Pasay City, Metro Manila on October 20, 2002. However, Glavović was dethroned on May 28, 2003 due to her failure to comply with the stipulations in her contract and was officially replaced by Omwakwe on August 7, 2003.
