The Mission

The mission is to provide an opportunity of achievement for women in wheelchairs to successfully educate and advocate for Americans living with a disability. It is 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.

The History
Organized in 1972 by a Columbus, Ohio physician Dr. Philip K. Wood as a forum for the promotion of the achievements, as well as the needs of, people with mobility impairments. Ms. Wheelchair America recognizes the accomplishments of women who utilize wheelchairs for mobility. The state programs are staffed and coordinated by volunteers dedicated to increasing public awareness so that all citizens will be afforded the opportunities to lead productive and meaningful lives.
