The Ms. Wheelchair Tennessee organization is excited to announce the 2013 Ms. Wheelchair Tennessee Pageant to be held on March 16, 2013 at the Doubletree Hotel, 407 Chestnut Street, Chattanooga, TN 37402. More details will be posted on our website at www.mswheelchairtn.org. We are currently looking for contestants, volunteers, sponsors and donations. All expenses for hosting the pageant and for Ms. Wheelchair Tennessee to travel throughout the State and to the national competition are obtained through fundraising efforts, donations and contestant sponsors. We are also accepting nominations for contestants. To be eligible, all contestants must be women ages 21-60, Tennessee residents and use a wheelchair as a primary source for daily mobility. All criteria are the same for Junior Miss except the age range is 13-20 and 6-12 for Little Miss. Only Ms. Wheelchair Tennessee competes in the national pageant. Ms. Wheelchair Tennessee must be able to communicate both the needs and abilities of her constituency to the general public, the business community and government. Ms. Wheelchair Tennessee will have the opportunity to travel and make public appearances. She will ultimately represent Tennessee at the Ms. Wheelchair America pageant in Houston, Texas in July.
