[July 25, 2011]  HOOVER, Ala. (AP) -- When Alabama's newest beauty queen is crowned this week, she might have more silver hair than your average beauty pageant contestant.

The Ms. Alabama Nursing Home pageant comes to a close Monday at the Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover. The top 10 finalists from nursing homes across the state will compete for the crown.

Contestants will have 15-minute interviews with a panel of judges and then answer a question on stage. The event will be co-hosted by Courtney Porter, who is Miss Alabama.

There were 75 contestants vying for the pageant. The finalists were named in April.

The judges include the commissioner of the state's Medicaid agency and Ms. Senior Alabama Frankie Cashion.
