The Ms. Mature Irving Pageant Rules

Sponsored by Heritage Senior Center
(City of Irving Parks and Recreation Department)

The Ms. Mature Irving Pageant strives to showcase the talents of senior citizens. It is our goal to demonstrate the worth of the senior citizen to the community, and to choose someone "young at heart" to represent the City of Irving at official functions.

This is a beauty contest in which the beauty of the spirit is celebrated. The pageant is multi-ethnic, and city wide. You can register through any of the city recreation centers throughout the city. The following winners will be selected at the pageant: Ms. Mature Irving, a First runner up, a Second runner up, and a Congeniality award. Ms. Mature will hold this title for one year, and must be available to speak and entertain at city functions.
