2024 Braille Challenge Season

We just wrapped up an exciting Braille Challenge season! 63 regionals participated and dozens of new Coordinators joined the Braille Challenge family! It has been so fun getting to know all of you!

Lots of exciting things happened this season:

New Regionals!

  • Australia Regional Braille Challenge hosted by See Differently AU
  • Central California Regional Braille Challenge hosted by Valley Center for the Blind
  • Mississippi Regional Braille Challenge hosted by the Mississippi Schools for the Blind and Deaf
  • West Virgina Regional Braille Challenge hosted by Children’s Vision Rehabilitation Program

Other Updates!

  • News coverage across regionals generated millions in media impressions. Braille Challenge is all the buzz!
  • Many engaging parent workshops took place covering topics including adaptive sports, guides dogs, independence, and Lego Braille Bricks.

As we are busy collecting scores to determine Finalists, we hope that you will continue to share the news about this great program so we can continue to grow in years to come.

Thank you for your dedication to the mission of Braille Challenge: promoting braille literacy.
