Any visually impaired student who reads braille is eligible to participate in the preliminary Challenge contest events, which are held from December through the mid-March at more than 40 different agencies and schools 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 achievement and general feedback on their performance, which is sent to families and educators in May.
