Ashutosh Sharma Highly Commended

There are 15,000 kids in the UK that suffer daily from Juvenile Arthritis.

JIA is when the joints are too swollen or painful, this makes everyday activities such as colouring very difficult.

To counter the problem, Ashutosh created a set of crayons that supports the joints while colouring. The crayon is attached to the finger becoming its extension with the colouring head at its tip.

By doing this, the child does not have to worry about gripping the crayon and can simply use their fingers to be creative.
