The 10th Annual National Braille Challenge®
On Saturday, June 26, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Braille Institute’s headquarters in Los Angeles, the best of the best students in the country will compete in an academic challenge requiring them to transcribe, type and read braille. According to an article in LISNEWS, "Most [of the students in the competition] were born blind, others lost their sight due to cancer or viral infections, but they all share a tenacity that drives them to succeed in spite of their disability."
