The delegates are chosen through a statewide competition that seeks students with disabilities who have leadership potential. Each applicant submits a standard form, an essay, and letter of recommendation. The group that is selected is representative of the state in terms of geographic, gender, economic status, ethnicity, and types of disabilities.
