Miss USA 1962, the 11th Miss USA pageant, took place in Long Beach, California, on July 12, 1962. The pageant was won by Macel Leilani Wilson of Hawaii, who was crowned by outgoing titleholder Sharon Brown of Louisiana. Wilson's win gave Hawaii the Miss USA crown at its first attempt, and two days later she was a Top 15 semi-finalist at Miss Universe 1962. Eleven states did not send a delegate to the 1962 pageant, resulting in the lowest number of contestants since the inaugural pageant of 1952.



The Miss USA 1962 delegates were:

No state delegate: Delaware, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Virginia, Washington, Wyoming
