BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) -- The winner of Hungary's Miss Colours
beauty pageant for wheelchair users says she will be an advocate
for improving access conditions for the disabled.

Katalin Eszter Varga was crowned Saturday, chosen by a jury from
among the eight finalists who rolled on stage in choreographed
moves set to music by Maroon 5 and Rihanna and wearing dresses from leading Hungarian designer Katti Zoob.

Varga, a 26-year-old perfume saleswoman who has been using a
wheelchair for four years, says there is a lot of work to be done
in Hungary to improve wheelchair access.

In the U.S., the first Ms. Wheelchair America pageant was held
in 1973, but organizer Tibor Kazany says Miss Colours is the first
such event in Europe and will be repeated annually.
