The Washington Council of the Blind invites your students to show off their braille skills at the Puget Sound Braille Challenge! This event is for students from kindergarten through 12th grade and celebrates and encourages Braille literacy in a fun and competitive atmosphere.
The Braille Challenge was created by the Braille Institute of America (BIA) in 2000 and has become a national program. Join the more than 1000 students expected to compete in a regional round this year and you may find yourself as one of the top contestants invited to the Finals in Los Angeles in June! Available contests include reading comprehension, braille speed and accuracy, proofreading, spelling and reading tactile charts and graphs. More information about the Braille Challenge is available at brailleinstitute.org.
