The contestants for the 2012 Ms. Senior Pike County Pageant are Lois Robinson and Jane Thrash of Brundidge and Elizabeth Grubbs, Rosa Carroll and Juanita Green of Troy.

The categories for judging will be evening gown, interview, talent and philosophy of life.

“The winner of the pageant will respresent Pike County at the Ms. Senior Alabama pageant in Birmingham in June,” Hollis said. “Alabama is one of the few states that have local pageants. Most of the states only have state pageants. The state winners then compete in the Ms. Senior America Pageant.”

Hollis said honoring the county’s senior women with pagant will be a benefit to the county.

Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door.
