Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano announced today that the 2016 Ms. New York Senior America Pageant will take place on Sunday, April 3, at Hofstra University. The pageant returns to Nassau County for a third year in a row after having been held in Suffolk County for many years.

The New York Senior America Organization features 15 women contestants aged 60 years or older, who best exemplify the qualities of the modern dynamic senior. The winning 2016 Queen will receive a $1,000 cash prize.

An array of talent will be on display, including singers, dancers, and musicians. The pageant consists of four categories: a personal interview; a recitation of their philosophy of life; an evening gown presentation; and a talent performance. The judges will select the “Queen and her Court” and the winner will go on to Atlantic City in October to compete with queens from other states for the coveted National Crown and title of Ms. Senior America.

Reserved seating for the 2016 Ms. New York Senior America Pageant is available for $25 per person. Group rates are available. To purchase tickets, please call Dolores Meglio at 631-249-0258. For more information please visit the website www.newyorksenioramerica.org.
