Ms. Wheelchair America Pageant 2014

Ms. Wheelchair America is a competition based on advocacy, achievement, communication and presentation to select the most accomplished and articulate spokeswoman for persons with disabilities.

From the Official Website:

The selected representative must be able to communicate both the needs and the accomplishments of her constituency to the general public, the business community and the legislature.

The Ms. Wheelchair America 2014 competition will take place July 15th – 21st 2013 in Houston, Texas. We anticipate our largest number of contestants from across the country to compete for the title of Ms. Wheelchair America 2014.

The Mission of Ms. Wheelchair America

The mission of Ms. Wheelchair America (visit the MWA organization’s main site here) is to provide an opportunity of achievement for women who happen to be wheelchair users to successfully educate and advocate for the more than 54 million Americans living with disabilities.

Duties of Ms. Wheelchair America

As Ms. Wheelchair America, the national titleholder has numerous duties. These include promoting awareness of the need to eliminate architectural and attitudinal barriers, informing the able-bodied public of the achievements of the millions of people with disabilities across the nation, and assisting with the establishment of programs in all 50 states by promoting Ms. Wheelchair America.
