Mission Statement

Promoting a Positive Image of Aging

New York Senior America invites women of 60 plus years to join together in the celebration of the Age of Elegance.

The purpose of Senior America is to engage in  programs and activities that dispel the myths of aging by enhancing the lives of senior Americans.  Each year we host a Pageant to select that  special woman who will best represent the State of New York.

Here’s an opportunity to  display your inner beauty, talents, and elegance.   Become a contestant and join us on this amazing journey.

Is there a crown in your future?

The New York Senior America Organization is seeking gracious women 60 or older who best exemplify the qualities of the modern dynamic senior woman to audition for the upcoming  pageants. The queen receives a crown, sash and a cash reward.

Auditions will be held in the Spring prior to the Pageant.  More information to follow.  There will be an array of talent on display, including singers, dancers, musicians and comediennes.

Those that successfully pass the audition will compete in the Ms. New York Senior America Pageant and the winner will move on to the Senior America National Pageant.

To participate in the audition, contact NYSA State Director Virginia Werner or email Virginia at vmw1848@yahoo.com for an audition appointment time and date.



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.
