Entry Fees

Contestants typically obtain sponsors to cover the entry fee. Obtaining sponsorship and fundraising is a component of the Ms. Wheelchair America competition. Most contestants are sponsored by family, friends, co-workers, schools, and local businesses. Entry fees help pay for the cost of the competition and include the contestant’s hotel stay, parking, and lunch for she and her companion. All sponsors will be listed in the ceremony program.

Entry fees can be mailed to Ms. Wheelchair Tennessee, P.O. Box 156 Harrison, TN 37341
