As the winner of the Miss Earth Serbia 2020 title, Jana Radulović was to represent Serbia in this year’s, jubilee edition of Miss Earth, which takes place completely virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic, and its final will take place on November 29. As it turned out, Jana doesn’t take part in Miss Earth 2020, and the country’s representative became Sandra Milenković from Belgrade.
