The moment you all have been waiting for is here…. drum roll please!

We’re proud to announce the 50 finalists for our 2024 Braille Challenge Finals competition being held on June 21-23 in Los Angeles on the University of Southern California (USC) campus.

FINALISTS

These 50 students scored the highest in braille literacy out of nearly 1,100 participating students across the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Australia. This year our finalists hail from twenty-two states, three Canadian provinces, and two United Kingdom boroughs.

Congratulations to all Braille Challenge participants who continue to demonstrate their love for braille reading and writing!

Braille Onward!

Braille Challenge is the only academic competition of its kind held each year in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia 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.
