O’Connor of Wayland, Massachusetts
has recently reigned as Mrs. Massachusetts.
Claire was selected as the most confident,
photogenic, poised, and articulate individual
among state contestants representing today's
American married women. Throughout 2005
she promoted married women across the
state. Claire went on to represent Massachusetts
in the nationally televised Mrs. America
Pageant, held in September at the fabulous
Riviera Resort and Racquet Club in Palm
Springs CA. At the national pageant, Claire
was only eliminated at the final round.
The Mrs. America judging is based on poise
and personality, beauty, evening gown
presentation, and swimsuit presentation.
National Mrs. America Pageant
Mrs. America Pageant, with the Mrs. World Pageant, is the largest
beauty pageant system of its kind in the world. With a record
number of applicants seeking to participate in the Mrs. America
Pageant, it is now projected that this is the fastest growing
pageant program in the United States. The Mrs. America Pageant
is the only nationally televised and recognized pageant for married
women. Established in 1977, this national competition is devoted
to proving that America’s 60 million married women are,
beyond a doubt, extraordinarily beautiful, poised, articulate
and versatile. Each of the 51 Mrs. America candidates achieves
the right to participate in the Mrs. America Pageant by winning
her statewide competition. The winner of the coveted Mrs. America
crown will travel across the country making personal appearances
during her year’s reign. Mrs. America will also represent
our country in the Mrs. World Pageant.
