TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- This year's ceremony was held at the Capitol Plaza Hotel and featured three contestants from across the Sunflower State.

Only one could be crowned 2015 Miss Wheelchair Kansas and Washburn Alum Carrie Sunday took this year's title and will travel throughout the state speaking to groups about the obstacles Kansans with disabilities face everyday.

"I am honored to be Miss Wheelchair Kansas because I think it's important that women with disabilities are empowered and seen as productive people in our community and that we have many accomplishments that we want to show people," said Sunday.

This was also the first year of the Little Miss Wheelchair Kansas competition. Congratulations to Ottawa native, Delaney Murphy.
