presenting ms. debra canale - 2019 nj senior america

New Jersey Senior America shares the same philosophy, mission statement, purpose and goals as its parent organization, Senior America Inc. and  its founder, Dr. Al Mott, as follows:   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 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.  NOTE:  To read more about us and see more pictures, please visit our Blog and Facebook page!

Pageant Requirements


New Contestants

You are required to be at least 60 years young - "The Age of Elegance" and you get to dress up like a princess awaiting her crown and entertain on a professional stage at Harrah's Ballroom Theatre from 1-4pm in the first week of June!  You  will be judged by six judges on the following:

  1. A private interview with the judges before the pageant wearing business attire
  2. Philosophy of Life
  3. Gown
  4. Talent

Directly following the pageant we all meet at the Eden Lounge with a Rocking Band.  Bring your friends & supporters and enjoy!



You win a cash prize, but that's not even the best part of being Queen!  You will reign all year long as Queen at  wonderful NJ State events, parades and Cameo Club events, including our four yearly meetings - and we do know how to have fun!

In October, you will compete once more - this time for the National Crown for Senior America, with contestants from all over our country!  NJ Senior America has already had two National Queens and several runners up!



You are in for the time of your life!  Not only will you get to live a fantasy but you also get to meet other lovely contestants and your future "sisters" who, like you, want to show the world that "We've Still Got It after the Age of 60!" 

Being in the pageant makes you an automatic member of the "Cameo Club" shown (left pic) performing at our yearly Atlantic City Boardwalk event at Kennedy Center, right in front of the famed Boardwalk Hall!  We also have a dance troupe, "NJ Star Steppers!"   We give back!!  You've nothing to lose, and everything to gain, so scroll down to download your application today!  You may submit it online, or download, print and mail it to our state director here:   Mrs. Terry Meade, 108 Rainflower Lane, Princeton, NJ  08550
