The Ms. Senior America Pageant. December 2016. Held in Atlantic City, NJ celebrates women of a certain age (60 and over). Contestants are judged on talent, a private interview with the judges, an evening gown component and a segment in which they must summarize their philosophy of life in 35 seconds. (L-R) Trina Shelton (Ms. Mississippi), Fran Owens (Ms. New Hampshire), Fay Briscoe-Walker (Ms. Montana), and Rebecca Ann-Taylor (Ms. North Carolina) pray over June Lacey (Ms. Minnesota), who had suffered a stroke a week before the 2016 National Ms. Senior America Pageant at the Resorts Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, NJ on October 20, 2016.
