Ms. Wheelchair Mississippi held in Madison

Contestants took the stage in Madison for the Ms. Wheelchair Mississippi competition.

Young girls and women in wheelchairs gathered Saturday at the Department of Rehabilitation Services.

Rebecca Sentell represented the state last year. She says this is more than a pageant.

"What it means to me is what you see right here. it's advocacy and awareness, and it's a sisterhood, and it's bigger than a competition," Sentell said.

The Ms. Wheelchair America organization has been operating for 50 years working to show representation for the 61 million Americans living with disabilities.
