With nearly 2,700 entries from Patch sites across the United States, Jack Hagan of Wyckoff, New Jersey, was selected the grand prize winner by celebrity judge Heidi Klum in Patch’s Little Pumpkin Costume Challenge.
Jack’s “headless boy” costume won him and his family a trip to New York City where they will meet the supermodel and make a $1,031 donation to K.I.N.D.: Kids in Need of Desks.
K.I.N.D., a joint effort of UNICEF and MSNBC, provides schools in Malawi with desks to provide students with a better atmosphere for learning. They aim to bring 46,000 desks to 172 schools.
The Halloween contest received more than 100 entries from communities across Long Island, but none was selected as a finalist.
