The Ms. North Senior America Pageant is an exciting combination of talent and inner beauty along with individual fulfillment and elegance.
More than a “beauty pageant” it is what America is about a re-affirmation of life and self-worth, of laughter and tears, of inner beauty and outward charm.
By giving women 60 years of age and older an opportunity to display their “inner beauty,” talents, and elegance, the Pageant seeks to draw attention to the achievements of senior women. The Pageant motivates and encourages women to utilize their full potential and share a positive outlook on life with others. Participants represent a cross-section of America.
Eligibility: Resident of North Carolina, 60 years of age or older
$125.00 Non-Refundable Entry Fee
Interview (5 minutes) 30%
Each contestant meets individually with a panel of judges. This is her opportunity to demonstrate her personality and conversational skill and begins the judges’ task of selecting the lady who best meets the ideals of Senior America.
Philosophy (35 seconds or less) 20%
The North Carolina Senior America Pageant recognizes physical fitness but seeks to emphasize that true beauty is a matter of insight as well as eyesight. Each contestant shares her personal “Philosophy of Life” with the audience so that the judges may develop insight into each lady’s own inner beauty. The thirty-five-second Philosophy statement isn’t a biography, but rather the wisdom that the contestant wishes to share with the younger generation.
Evening Gown 20%
North Carolina Senior America believes that the woman makes the clothes– with her taste, style, and knowledge of what’s right for her. During this event, the judges seek the contestant whose poise and grace best illustrate the “Age of Elegance.”
Talent/Creativity (2:45 sec or less) 30%
Ms. North Carolina Senior America demonstrates that talent does not diminish with age, and should continue to be shared. Each contestant presents her talent within 2 minutes and 45 seconds time. Whether music, dance, comedy, drama, poetry, art, sewing, or other special skill, talent presentations demonstrate the extraordinary, and ongoing, gifts of today’s senior women. Respect for the time limit shows that maturity can bring both creativity and good judgment.
