Maryland School for the Blind
2016 Braille Challenge
Braille is an important key to literacy! It allows for the enjoyment of reading, leads to school success, and opens the doors to future employment. Each year in February, students who read braille in grade Pre-K though Grade 12 are invited to participate in the Maryland Regional Braille Challenge reading and writing contests. Parents are invited to participate in workshops about current topics related to visual impairment and education, while students are taking the tests. Teachers and school staff are invited to assist with test proctoring and scoring and helping to facilitate the day.
The 2016 Maryland Regional Braille Challenge will be held at The Maryland School for the Blind on Saturday, January 30, 2016 from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm. The snow date will be Saturday, February 6.
