Amanda Szidiropulosz of Cleveland will travel to Long Beach, CA, the first week of August to compete for the title of Ms. Wheelchair America 2015.

She currently holds the title of Ms. Wheelchair Tennessee 2014.

Szidiropulosz will participate in intensive personal interviews and workshops during the week-long event, which includes a day at the Aquarium of the Pacific and several themed dinners.

The contest culminates with a night of platform speeches on Aug. 8 and the crowning of the new national titleholder on Aug. 9. If crowned, she will spend the next year traveling across America to break barriers faced by people with disabilities.

Although the contestants are showcased in a pageant format, physical beauty is not a consideration.

The 27 contestants will be judged on their advocacy work, personal interviews, poise and demeanor, platform speeches and on-stage interviews.

This year there will be a People’s Choice Award. Information on the contest and for voting for your favorite, is available at www.mswheelchairamerica.org.
