Miss Minnesota United States - 2021

Elle Gilbert

There are several platforms and charities that hold a huge place in my heart.

The Minnesota Sheltie Rescue and the Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue are two animal organizations I've volunteered for for many years. I love supporting animal rights and making sure each animal has a "fur-ever" home. For these organizations, I run social media, foster animals that have just come into the organization, help search for lost dogs, and make tie-blankets for animals new to the organization.

Another organization I support is my local city royalty program. I was an Eagan Funfest Ambassador in 2012 and have since served as a committee member for the organization. As of this summer, I am now the Ambassador Chair on the greater Eagan's July 4t Funfest Board of Directors. For this organization, I run social media, select wardrobe, chaperone the ambassadors at events, hold etiquette workshops, host the annual coronation and television spots, and serve as the program's photographer throughout the year.

A huge area I'm passionate about is giving young women the tools they need to conquer the world. This includes etiquette and giving young women confidence resources and tips to allow them to be the best version of themselves. This is why I created my "Crowned in Confidence" platform. We cover communication skills, personal safety tips, volunteering, and finding a purpose. So far, I’ve been able to hold confidence seminars with renowned guest speakers impacting over 200 women spanning across 10 states. I hope to continue this through the title of Miss United States.
