TOPEKA – The Ms. Wheelchair Kansas program is currently searching for women of achievement, who are wheelchair mobile, to serve as contestants in the Seventh Annual Ms. Wheelchair Kansas event. The 2011 event will take place on March 18-20 at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Topeka. Applications must be postmarked by January 7th, 2011.
This program is NOT a beauty contest, but rather a competition to select the most articulate, accomplished delegate to serve as a role model and spokesperson for people with disabilities in Kansas. The crowned titleholder will have the opportunity to travel throughout the state of Kansas educating various groups about the issues of importance to people with disabilities.
She will have the opportunity to share her chosen platform, interact with the media, and network with many people throughout Kansas. She will also represent Kansas at the Ms. Wheelchair America competition in August.
