What is Braille Challenge?

The Braille Challenge® is an academic competition unlike any other. This two-stage contest is designed to motivate blind students to emphasize their study of braille, while rewarding their success with fun-filled, but challenging, local and national events. Any visually impaired student who reads braille is eligible to participate in the preliminary Challenge contest events, which were held from January through the end of March throughout the U.S. and Canada. Contests are proctored by volunteer teachers for visually impaired students and scored locally according to our national guidelines by volunteer transcribers. Each contestant receives a brailled certificate of appreciation and general feedback on their performance, which will be sent to families and educators in May.

A BIG THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS

The Braille Challenge® wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sponsors. Their generosity supports all facets of the program, from producing contests to providing high tech prizes to sponsoring our gala awards ceremony.
