A new Little Miss Wheelchair Kansas will also be selected this year from a pool of contestants. This program recognizes young girls, ages 5-12, who are wheelchair mobile, dynamic, spirited, positive, and who have something to say to the people in our state.  The chosen Little Miss works alongside Ms. Wheelchair Kansas to empower and educate people of all ages and serves as a role model to her peers. Little Miss Wheelchair contestants must be nominated with permission from the contestant’s parent/guardian.  Nominations are due by January 7, 2018.  Nomination forms and more information can be found at
