New Jersey Bead Design Contest Winner: IAN BLACK
The annual Beads of Courage Bead Challenge features a friendly competition among all 50 states to see which state is the most inspired by our mission as measured by the total amount of funds raised and beads donated during the challenge.
The Most Inspired State is honored with a commemorative Beads of Courage Legacy Bead showcasing the winning state. The bead design is chosen by a panel of judges in a bead design contest open to Beads of Courage members, families, clinicians and supporters.
Ian, the 2016 bead design winner, is 11years old and a Beads of Courage sibling. His brother, Josh, is in the Beads of Courage Cardiac Program. Ian’s design depicts a soothing sunset at a beach along the New Jersey shore. The family is planning a trip to the beach soon so they can enjoy a sunset together.
