Braille Challenge Updates

Together Again

Greetings All –

Time to plan for the upcoming Braille Challenge season! Summer break is over, and students and teachers are brimming with excitement to be back to programs and learning together.

Being open and flexible will be key to navigating this upcoming season. Beyond the additional health and safety protocols, Braille Challenge programs will look different as regionals host virtual, in-person or hybrid programs.

Braille Challenge season will run from January 1st, 2022 to March 16th, 2022.

This month the National Programs team will be hosting a series of Regional Coordinators meetings. We will be sharing program updates and answering any questions you may have about your program. It has never been more important for us to look out for one another and support each other as we navigate these uncertain times.

Here’s to a terrific Braille Challenge season!

Keep Calm and Braille On!

COVID-19: Braille Institute is offering high quality in-person and virtual programming options to best meet specific health and safety needs for you and your region.

TVIs Proctor Students: If you have a student who reads and writes braille, they are eligible to participate in the Braille Challenge! You can proctor the exam for your student.

Braille Challenge is the only academic competition of its kind held in January through March each year in North America for students who are blind or visually impaired. Braille Institute developed Braille Challenge to motivate students to practice and hone their braille literacy skills, which are essential to academic and employment success. Learn more…
