Are you one of those people that love watching Ms. America or even Toddler In Tiaras? Well, this probably won’t be nearly as dramatic as Honey Boo Boo television, but there are about to be a flock of lovely ladies heading down to Houston to compete in Ms. Wheelchair Texas! Check out this blurb from the upcoming newsletter about the competition:
Ms. Wheelchair America is a non-profit program that promotes the achievements and challenges for women with mobility impairments. Ms. Wheelchair Texas is a sub-pageant underneath Ms. Wheelchair Texas that promotes all of the same wonderful agenda. According to their website, “Ms. Wheelchair America and Ms. Wheelchair Texas Pageants are competitions designed to select the most accomplished and articulate spokeswoman for the millions of disabled Americans. 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.” Duties of Ms. Wheelchair Texas include media and public appearances, conduct interviews and travel around the state advocating the eliminations of physical barriers and educating the general public on the issues facing people with disabilities.
Our Camp Craig Allen family is very involved in the Ms. Wheelchair Texas organization and a few of our campers and staff actually hold titles. Our very own Amanda Hall was crowned Ms. Wheelchair Texas 2011 and the darling Skylar Conover was voted Ms. Congeniality 2012! This year, Skylar is returning to the pageant, being held April 4th-7th in Houston, Texas. Good luck, Skylar!!!!
