It’s Time for Braille Challenge 2023

In our 23rd year of Braille Challenge we are excited to work alongside new and returning coordinators in our Braille Challenge community. We value your dedication to excellence in the education of our youth and look forward to all the excitement every season brings.

Regionals are happening all over the US, Canada and UK! Have you checked out what’s happening in your region? This year is full of closer-to-normal learning experiences, including more in-person programming and social activities.

We view education as a life-long process and continue to learn every year from the students, parents, educators, transcribers and supporters who make up the Braille Challenge community.

Check out our Finals 2023 page to get in on all the exciting plans!

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…
