Gracie Pfaff has been selected to represent Cocoa Beach at the Miss Florida USA®/Miss Florida Teen USA® Competition as Miss Cocoa Beach USA.  Her selection was based on her academic and professional interests, involvement in her community, her passion for the pursuit of excellence and her interest in empowering other young women to follow in her footsteps. 

At just 12 years old, Gracie founded her own non-profit, Harvest107, which helps people grow organic, nutritious vegetables to end hunger sustainably. This year, Gracie saw a need for inspiration and unity in her generation and started Oneness, an online magazine to showcase important causes, art, and more. In 2019-20, at age 18, Gracie represented Cocoa Beach as Miss Cocoa Beach Teen USA, placing in the top 15 in Miss Florida Teen USA® competition. She is excited to represent her hometown once again, this time as Miss Cocoa Beach USA.

Girlbossing Inc., as the Florida USA Organization, will produce and conduct the Sunshine State’s oldest and most celebrated competition this coming April 2021 to qualify two young ladies from Florida to advance to either Miss Teen USA or Miss USA and ultimately Miss Universe.  All competition details are available at


The sponsored prize package includes over $100,000 in gifts, cash and scholarships for both Miss Florida USA and Miss Florida Teen USA including the official crown and sash, round trip air fare to MISS USA/MISS TEEN USA, an official competition evening gown, official crown portrait, fitness coaching, skin care, hair care and much more.  

“We actively encourage young women in the state of Florida to give back in their communities and advocate for issues they feel passionately towards.  Our organization is committed to providing new opportunities for women in media, entertainment, modeling, fashion, beauty and more, at our events throughout the year, and the actual weekend of competition,” said Girlbossing Inc.
