Ms. New Jersey Senior America, Inc. shares the same philosophy, mission statement, purpose, and goals as its parent organization, Ms. Senior America Inc., and its founder, Dr. Al Mott. The Ms. Senior America Pageant is the world's first and foremost Pageant to emphasize and honor 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.
