Kat Shaw

Washington resident Kat Shaw is among the 10 finalists competing in the Ms. Missouri Senior Pageant being held this Saturday, July 14, at 2 p.m. at the Florissant Civic Center.

A profile story on Shaw, “Conquering 60,” appeared in the January issue of Senior LifeTimes, The Missourian’s monthly senior publication.

The pageant, held annually in the St. Louis area, exemplifies the elegance of senior women over the age of 60. The ladies compete in four categories: personal interview with judges before the pageant starts; poise in evening gown; recitation of a 35-second philosophy of life; and talent.

The Senior America Pageant is the world’s first and foremost pageant to emphasize and give honor to women who have reached the “Age of Elegance.”
