Celebrate the Age of Elegance!


The Ms. Senior America Pageant is the world's first and foremost pageant to emphasize and give honor to women who have reached the age of elegance. It is a search for the gracious lady who best exemplifies the dignity, maturity and inner beauty of all senior Americans. The Ms. Senior America Pageant philosophy is based upon the belief that seniors are the foundation of America and our most valuable treasure. It is upon their knowledge, experience and resources that the younger generation has the opportunity to build a better society. This state-wide competition focuses on promoting aging: we want to bring attention to the American public that aging is not something to be afraid of. This is a time of life when women can seek things out, step out of that box and break the stereotyping that women reaching a certain age are considered "over the hill." Take a look at our Winners Page and see that these women are anything but rocking chair candidates! They're role models for young and old alike in their communities and beyond. And when they come to journey's end, they will certainly not see a life defined by "What If's" or a life of regret.
