Miss Florida Pageant competition has been organized for 85 years and in this year’s competition we will see Finnish Beauty, as Anastasia Valimaki will be competing in number 27. She is from Lantana; Florida and she is the winner of Miss Homestead 2020 pageant competition.

The pageant competition industry has changed over the years. Selecting the winner is no longer just a superficial overlook of the beauty of the contestants, it is so much more. Each contestant is being judged on their composure, intelligence, how talented they are, as well as what are they doing to ensure the world is a bit better place. When Miss America competition removed the swimsuit component in 2018, the entire industry has shifted. The winner is no longer selected just by the superficial outlook; the women competing and women all around the world are so much more than just their looks.

The competition will have three sections: an evening gown, athletic wear, and personal interview. There are total of 33 beautiful contestants and the winner will be representing Florida at Miss America pageant competition.
