LEONARDO, NJ - Our organization was founded in 1910, and our original logo (above) was created as a symbol of the New Jersey Blind Men’s Association – our former name. Now the New Jersey Blind Citizens Association (NJBCA), we are celebrating 100 years of service to the blind and visually impaired in 2010, and we need your help to update our logo design! The New Jersey Blind Citizens Association is holding a contest to help determine an updated design of the logo above; one that will better represent NJBCA for the next 100 years.
