Ms. Wheelchair Kansas seeking nominations for ‘Women Of Achievement’ and ‘Little Miss’

TOPEKA, Kan. – Ms. Wheelchair Kansas Inc. is currently searching for women of achievement who are wheelchair mobile to serve as contestants in the 18th Annual Ms. Wheelchair Kansas event. Contestants can be nominated by a person or group, or can choose to participate in the program. Organizations and companies are being encouraged to nominate women who are passionate, dynamic, articulate, and who have a message to share throughout the state. MWKS is also seeking nominations for the Little Miss Wheelchair Kansas program that celebrates young spirited girls, ages 5-12, who are wheelchair mobile.

The Ms. Wheelchair Kansas 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. Contestants will be scored based on their accomplishments, self-perception, communication, and projection skills. The crowned titleholder will have the opportunity to travel throughout Kansas educating various groups about the issues of importance to people with disabilities. Her reign will lead up to the national competition, where she will compete for the title of Ms. Wheelchair America.

A new Little Miss Wheelchair Kansas will also be selected this year. This program recognizes young girls, ages 5-12, who are wheelchair mobile, dynamic, spirited, positive, and who have something to say to the people in our state. The chosen Little Miss will work alongside Ms. Wheelchair Kansas to empower and educate people of all ages and will serve as a role model to her peers.

The 18th Annual Ms. Wheelchair Kansas event will be held March 17-19, 2023, at the DoubleTree Hotel, Lawrence, Kan. Applications for both programs must be postmarked by Jan. 7, 2023. For more information about the Ms. Wheelchair Kansas or Little Miss programs, to become a contestant, or to nominate a contestant, contact Carrie Greenwood, MWKS President/CEO, at 785-633-7255 or mswheelchairkansas@yahoo.com, or see www.mswheelchairkansas.org.
