The Braille Challenge® is an academic competition unlike any other. This two-stage contest is designed to motivate students who are Blind/Visually Impaired to emphasize their study of braille while rewarding their success with fun-filled, but challenging, local and national events. Any student in 1st through 12th grade who is BVI and reads braille is eligible to participate in the preliminary Challenge contest event.
