Women with disabilities are breaking barriers and going for the top prize. Miss Wheelchair USA is now underway.
Participants from across the country register to compete in the pageant. Organizers tell us every girl has already won her state title. The winner of Miss Wheelchair USA will be a spokeswoman for people with disabilities.
“That they don’t need to let their disability stop them. That you can use your disability as a platform to go out and make the world a better place,” says President of Ms. Wheelchair America.
The program runs through Saturday. Organizers say the participants are judged on their public speaking, advocacy and initiative.
