Braille Works Congratulates the 2015 National Braille Challenge ParticipantsPublished on
The Braille Institute of America hosted the 2015 National Braille Challenge ® 60 winners from across the U.S. and Canada, on June 20, 2015. The Braille Challenge® allows students to highlight their Braille skills in the following areas: reading comprehension, typing speed and accuracy, proofreading, spelling and reading tactile charts and graphs. The competition was held in Los Angeles, California.
Braille Works is honored to be a Regional Sponsor of the Florida Braille Challenge. One of the Florida participants, Kate Antolak of Venice, earned the NBC4 Braille Superstar Award for Excellence in Reading Comprehension. Kate is a student at Venice High School. She has been reading Braille since she was 3-years old and has been participating in The Braille Challenge® for 7-years.
We believe Braille literacy is the route to independence, success and employment for persons who are blind. Programs like The Braille Challenge® motivate students who are blind, in a fun and rewarding manner. Volunteers and sponsors make the program successful. Please consider being a sponsor and/or a volunteer at a Braille Challenge® competition in your area. For more information please visit the Braille Challenge® homepage or the Braille Institute of America.
Braille Works would like to congratulate all of the finalists in the 2015 Braille Challenge®!
