We salute and honor Senior Women! Women who have reached the age of 60,
with their knowledge and life experience, are the foundation of our society.
The Ms. New York Senior America Pageant, held annually, spotlights and honors senior women.
It celebrates women of achievement, age 60 and over who, with their talent,
abilities and positive projection of aging, best exemplify what senior women can and do accomplish.

maturity and inner beauty of all senior Americans.
