Amanda Kozak (born July 24, 1984) is a beauty queen from Warner Robins, Georgia who placed second runner-up at Miss America 2007 and is the current Miss Georgia USA. She will compete in the Miss USA 2008 pageant.

Kozak first competed in the Miss Georgia pageant in 2004 where she made the top eleven. The following year she placed first runner-up to Monica Pang. Kozak represented Georgia in the Miss National Sweetheart pageant (for Miss America state runners-up) in September 2005, and placed first runner-up.

In June 2006, after winning the Miss Valdosta local title, Kozak won the Miss Georgia 2006 title. She also won preliminary awards in swimsuit and evening gown. Her platform for the state pageant was "Positive Role Models Through Mentoring"

Kozak represented Georgia in the Miss America 2007 pageant held in Las Vegas, Nevada on 29 January, 2007 and placed second runner-up to Lauren Nelson of Oklahoma. This was the second consecutive year that Georgia placed in the top three, as Pang had placed first runner-up at Miss America 2006. Kozak's talent was a tap dance performance, and her platform issue was Mentoring with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America Organization.

Kozak, a graduate of Warner Robins High School, has a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Valdosta State University.

On November 10th, 2007 she was crowned Miss Georgia USA 2008. She is the first ever Miss Georgia to win the title and will represent Georgia at Miss USA 2008. She will attempt to become only the fifth woman to place in the top 5 at both national pageants (Miss America and Miss USA). Despite being tipped a favorite in the pageant, she surprisingly did not make the first cut and is one of very few Miss America runner ups not to make the Miss USA semifinals (i.e. Rebekah Ann Keller, Miss California USA and Miss California).
