More than 50 blind service agencies and state schools for blind and visually impaired children throughout the United States and Canada host their own fun-filled Braille Challenge regional events each year between December and mid-March. A regional event offers students of all reading levels a broad and enriching experience. Most include parent workshops, entertainment, speakers and access technology demonstrations.
But more importantly, the regionals give parents of blind children the opportunity to meet each other and set the stage for students to experience the exhilaration of live competition and receive acknowledgment for their hard work.
The Braille Challenge Regional is an event in a box, meaning that Braille Institute provides Regional Coordinators hosting their own Braille Challenge with all the information, forms, contests, sample agendas, marketing resources, etc., to make your event as easy and simple as possible. We encourage anyone interested in hosting their own regional Braille Challenge event to read through the Braille Challenge Handbook and to complete the interest form below. You can also find more information on our Coordinators page and in our document library for Coordinators.
