The Ms. Wheelchair USA program is dedicated to celebrating the abilities and successful accomplishments of women with disabilities.
•To qualify, contestants must be women, ages 18 and older by July 30, 2008. There is no “age limit” in this competition!
•Contestants should utilize a wheelchair as their main source of mobility however; this program DOES NOT exclude women who may be able to utilize their legs.
•Contestants must be residents or students in their state for at least two months.
•Contestants may be married, single, or divorced.
•Contestants may have children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, or no children.
Sponsorship is an important part of the Ms. Wheelchair USA program. Contestants may seek sponsors to assist them with their individual expenses like entry fees, clothing, travel expenses, etc.
Most likely the next state competition will begin in September, just after the August 2009 National Competition concludes. The deadline for entering this year was missed by Kateryna, she found out about the program with weeks to spare.
