Registration is now open for the 19th Annual New England Regional Braille Challenge March 2nd at the Carroll Center for the Blind. There is no cost to attend. More than 1,000 braille readers participate in this national competition through the 51 Regional competitions across North America promoting the importance of braille literacy. The Braille Institute developed the Braille Challenge to encourage blind and visually impaired children of all ages to hone their braille skills, which are essential to academic and vocational success in the sighted world.
In preparation for the Braille Challenge, the Carroll Center is offering a Braille Brush Up Day on Saturday, January 26th at the Carroll Center for the Blind.
