The Ms. Wheelchair Pennsylvania organization is Not a beauty contest but rather a competition to select the most articulate, accomplished delegate who will serve as a role model and spokesperson for people with disabilities in Pennsylvania. This woman of achievement will have the opportunity to travel throughout the state of Pennsylvania educating the general public, business community, legislature and others about the issues that are important to people with disabilities.
She will share her chosen platform (or passion) with different groups, interact with the media, and serve as a role model for youth and adults alike. She will also serve as an advocate in the disability community. Her overall message will be one of promoting diversity and breaking down stereotypes against people with disabilities. Her reign will lead to an opportunity to attend the national competition where she will compete for the title of Ms. Wheelchair America.
