Each year, the National Federation of the Blind has a contest to encourage children in grades K-12 to improve their braille literacy. I’ve pasted the information on the contest from the NFB’s Imagineering Our Future newsletter below:
It’s time to register for the 2011-2012 Braille Readers Are Leaders contest. Registration for the K-12 and adult contests opens October 1, 2011. For the past 29 years this contest has encouraged children in grades K-12 to be proud of their ability to read Braille and to continually work to improve their skills. This will be the third year the adults have joined in the fun of the Braille Readers Are Leaders contest.
The reading period starts November 1, 2011. Start gathering your reading material now so you can hit the books hard on November 1 and start the contest strong. Registration will remain open through the end of the contest, January 4, 2012. Visit www.nfb.org/bral to register today. If you have questions about the contest, please e-mail Braille Readers Are Leaders or call (410) 659-9314, extension 2312.
