We are strong. We are vibrant. We are beautiful and talented. We are the Ms. Colorado Senior America Pageant! If you have reached the “Age of Elegance” (60 years and over) and you are still self confident, vivacious, and joyful, come be a contestant at the 2016 Pageant. It will be held on April 17, 2016, at the Lakewood Cultural Center, 470 S. Allison Parkway, Lakewood, CO.
Our organization is filled with committed senior women who love to give back to their community. They perform at senior centers, veteran centers, and other venues and love to continue to share their personalities and talents to enrich the lives of others. You can join this wonderful club by competing in the Pageant. All contestants will become automatic members of the Colorado Cameo Club (CCC), the supporting arm of the organization.
During the pageant, contestants are scored by a panel of judges looking for the lady who best exemplifies the inner beauty and dignity of a Ms. Colorado Senior America. Criteria used is a private interview, an evening gown competition which displays poise and gracefulness, a statement that conveys her “philosophy of life,” and a talent presentation that demonstrates that a woman’s accomplishments in music, art, dance, or other talent need not diminish with maturing age. If crowned queen, you will have the same wonderful experiences as the 2015 Queen, Buddi Boryla, who has appeared in parades, was featured on the 9News morning show with TaRhonda Thomas, performed at many showcases, and competed at the Ms. Senior America Pageant in Atlantic City, NJ, in October.
