BOISE, Idaho — A group of beautiful women were crowned Miss Amazing in the eighth annual Idaho Miss Amazing event on Saturday night.

The event is much more than a pageant, it is a platform for girls and women with disabilities to share their abilities and ambitions.

The ladies were crowned at the College of Idaho in Caldwell.

Maddie Zahm from 'American Idol' was at the pageant to perform and take photos with attendees and contestants.

The winners go on to compete at the National Miss Amazing Pageant in Chicago.
