The Braille Challenge - Toronto

Learning through competition! The Braille Challenge is the only academic competition of its kind in North America for students who are blind or partially sighted. Braille Institute developed the Braille Challenge to motivate students to practice and hone their braille literacy skills, which are essential to academic and employment success. If your child is interested in testing their braille skills in reading, writing and spelling, join us at the CNIB GTA Community Hub for a fun, free event with food and prizes for the entire family and workshops for parents. Any braille-using students in Ontario can participate.
