Each year, we hold a competition to recognize the achievements of women who happen to use wheelchairs. At the end of the competition, our judges select one of these women to represent the entire State of Tennessee at the National Ms. Wheelchair America Pageant. [singlepic id=271 w=630 h=300 float=left] Our competition is often referred to as a pageant, but it is NOT a beauty pageant. Contestants are NOT judged on physical beauty. They are judged on accomplishments, communication skills (by any means), and self-perception/projection. The fact that they are all gorgeous is pure coincidence!
