Dreams, Inc. is launching the first ever Mr. Wheelchair America competition, to held near Washington, DC in July 2007.
For more than 35 years, women from all over the United States have competed in the Ms.
Wheelchair America Pageant — it is now time for men to have their own competition.
The criteria is simple. Be a man who uses a wheelchair 100% of the time, between the ages of 21 and 60, and be a United States citizen. And have high-quality communication skills and be willing to travel.
Judging is based on the achievements and accomplishments of the individual since the onset of the disability. Whether it be a disability from birth, or a recent injury, we want men in wheelchairs to register.
We want men who would like to become a national spokesperson and ambassador for people with disabilities. And perhaps already have a platform they want to make known, i.e. employment, handicap parking issues, etc.
If you are interested, or would like to nominate someone, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or check out the website at: www.dreamsforever.info.
The application will also be online for easy registration. There is a registration fee with details on the website.
We know there are many great guys out there in wheelchairs, and want to hear from you! So get in touch with us, and make Mr. Wheelchair America a reality.
