BRIGHTON -- Whether their fathers want to admit it or not, at some point in their lives most little girls dream of being a pageant queen.

For young girls with disabilities, that dream may seem harder to achieve.

That was the inspiration behind the Miss Amazing pageant, which celebrates the abilities of girls and women with disabilities in at least 30 states as well as in a national competition.

“She loves socializing so all her friends will be there,” Robert Hall told Denver7 about his daughter, Talia, before the Colorado pageant in Broomfield. “She gets to party and have a good time and be the queen, lot of attention."

Talia Sarles is a well-decorated Special Olympic athlete who competes in soccer, bowling, track and field and basketball.

This weekend, she’ll be doing interviews with judges, competing in a talent competition and walking on stage wearing a silver ball gown, which she proudly showed off to Denver7's Eric Lupher when he visited her family at their Brighton home before the competition.

The Miss Amazing pageant welcomes contestants as young as five-years-old. You can learn more about becoming a contestant in future Miss Amazing competitions on their website.
