Ms. Senior Alabama, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, in existence since 1987, dedicated to enrich the lives of senior women, while offering opportunities for them to share their experiences, wisdom, and interests with others. MSA, Inc. promotes confidence and strives to build self-esteem through encouragement of peers. The women form friendships and network all over the state of Alabama. Our goal is to inspire women to pursue interests and dreams through our message that it is never too late, and you always have a purpose. Ms. Senior  Alabama, Inc., encourages community outreach, volunteerism, and that it is never too late to follow your dreams, try something new, and that every person has a purpose at all ages. We are women supporting women across the State of Alabama! Our titleholders and delegates form a sisterhood and serve in communities together. You may find them singing at a retirement center, supporting veterans at a horse ranch, serving ice cream to children, uplifting the crowds in a parade or at an event, or speaking about the amazing philosophies of life and platforms they are passionate about. Each delegate has a message for senior women and a recipe for success to share.

 

The organization is managed by a Board of Directors who volunteer their time to ensure that Ms. Senior Alabama, Inc. participants have the necessary resources to carry out the MSA purpose of community outreach and to compete in the Ms. Senior Alabama State Pageant. The mission of Ms. Senior Alabama, Inc. is to provide advocacy for senior women via a statewide organization. Ms. Senior Alabama, Inc. functions exclusively for charitable, educational, and entertainment purposes to provide opportunities for women ages 60 and above and to inform them on matters of interest and for their well-being. Ms. Senior Alabama, Inc. is an organization designed to honor and celebrate senior women (60 and older) in Alabama. MSA strives to find women who best exemplify the dignity, maturity, and inner beauty to inspire all seniors throughout the State of Alabama. 

Ms. Senior Alabama, Inc. has the 60-69 category for the title of Ms. Senior Alabama and the 70 and above catgegory for the title of Ms. Super Senior Alabama. All delegates must be the age of their specific category on or before the date of the pageant of each year. Categories of competition for all delegates are: Interview with Judges, Philosophy of Life, Elegance and Inner Beauty, Onstage Question, Active Lifestyle, and Fashion Runway. Delegates also participate in the Queen's Dinner Gala, Opening and Closing Numbers, Workshops (live and virtual), and Rehearsals, which are not scored as part of the competition, but are required of all delegates. MSA, Inc. does not have talent or swimsuit competitions. 

 

Almost all of the Ms. Senior Alabama winners were in the top ten and some in the top five in Ms. Senior America. We had one Ms. Senior Alabama Gilda Wear Campbell, to win Ms. Senior America in 1988. We won three titles in Ms. Senior USA/Universe Pageants the first year we participated: Ms. Senior USA 2017, Ms. Super Senior USA 2017, Ms. Senior Universe 2017, and Ms. Super Senior Universe 2019. Ms. Senior Alabama delegates of the 60-69 age category have won or placed each year they have sent delegates to compete in Ms. Senior World since 2020.
