Consider encouraging your students to attend a Braille Challenge regional event
If you would like your student to attend a Regional Challenge Event, please contact the coordinator nearest you to register your student. See the List of Regional Events to find out where your student can take the Preliminary Braille Challenge hosted by an agency in your state.
A student may only take the 2021 Preliminary Contest ONCE
It’s a full day of fun and camaraderie, workshops, demonstrations and prizes. More than 45 agencies across the United States and Canada are finalizing their calendars throughout the next two months – here is a current List of Regional events and dates.
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, or access technology demonstrations. But more importantly, regional contests 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 acknowledgement for their hard work.
For some students, a Preliminary Contest event may be over-stimulating or too stressful and not always optimal for success. If you feel your student may need any special consideration, please contact the Regional Coordinator in your area.
