A Week of Workshops

Beginning on Wednesday, the contestants attended workshops on various topics related to women’s issues, disability law, presentation skills and self-confidence. Workshops occurred Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Contestants were also attending judging sessions during the week. Each lovely lady was judged behind closed doors, in three 10 minute sessions. The five member judging panel asked questions of each woman, scoring on poise, presentation, and an ability to communicate.

About Webmaster

The mission of Ms. Wheelchair America is to provide an opportunity of achievement for women who happen to be wheelchair users to successfully educate and advocate for the more than 52 million Americans living with disabilities. Unlike traditional beauty pageants, Ms. Wheelchair America is not a contest to select the most attractive individual. It is instead a competition based on advocacy, achievement, communication and presentation to select the most accomplished and articulate spokeswoman for persons with disabilities. 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.
