Students, it is time to show off your braille skills! Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired is excited to host the 2022 NorCal Regional Braille Challenge! 

Braille Challenge is the only academic competition of its kind, allowing students with vision loss to show off their fabulous braille reading, writing, and editing skills! Braille Challenge motivates students to hone their literacy skills through friendly competition and games, generates a foundation for academic and employment success, and curates friendship and camaraderie within the Northern California community. 

Students, are you up for the Challenge? Sign up using Our Event Registration Form below to receive your registration documents.

Any student grades 1 – 12 who has vision loss and can read and write braille is eligible to participate in the Braille Challenge. Contestants are divided into five categories and tested on fundamental braille skills such as reading comprehension, spelling, speed and accuracy, proofreading, and charts and graphs. There are 5 age groups including Apprentice 1 – 2 grades, Freshman 3 – 4 grades, Sophomore 5 – 6 grades, Junior Varsity 7 -9 grades, and Varsity 10 – 12 grades.

Partnering with California School for the Blind and San Francisco Lighthouse for the Blind, the 2022 NorCal Regional Braille Challenge will be a chance to reunite and celebrate your braille accomplishments! Parent and student workshops will include student panels, adult mentors, guest speakers and a chance to come together as a community.
