The Pageant is for women who have reached the “age of elegance” – 60 years of age and up. Each contestant competing in this year’s pageant either won a city title or was first runner up in the six preliminary pageants that were held around the State. The Pageant seeks to elevate elegant senior women and allow them to get the recognition they deserve.
The winner of Ms. Senior California, will go, all expenses paid, to compete in the October 2012 Ms. Senior America Pageant held in Atlanta City.
Reigning Ms. Senior California, Norma Morein from Long Beach, went on to win Third Runner Up at the 2011 Ms. Senior America Pageant. A former educator and business owner, Norma spends her time assisting families and seniors in completing oft-neglected tasks – making their days easier and less complicated. She has used her platform as Ms. Senior California to bring “attention to the resources, skills, knowledge, talents, and experience that the millions of seniors in this country possess.”
Since 1972, the Ms. Senior America – as well as all state chapters – has held to the philosophy that seniors are the foundation of America and should be considered its most valuable treasure. They believe that through their knowledge, experience, and resources, the younger generations of America has the opportunity to build a better society.
Ms. Senior California of America, Inc. was established as a non-profit corporation in 2010 and is affiliated with Ms. Senior America, Inc., founded in 1971. The Ms. Senior California Pageant is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and is now the largest senior pageant program in the nation. For more information please visit www.MsSrCalifornia.com.
