Ohio Regional Braille Challenge Set for March 1, 2019

Students compete in the 2018 Ohio Regional Braille Challenge

Students from across Ohio will make their way to Clovernook Center for the Blind & Visually Impaired on Friday, March 1 to compete in the Ohio Regional Braille Challenge.

Students in grades 1-12 will compete in a series of five skills contests to demonstrate braille reading and comprehension, speed and accuracy, spelling, proofreading and tactile graphics.

New this year, Clovernook Center is adding the Braille Explorers category for children who are not yet ready for competition but are interested in participating in a fun-filled day. Braille Explorers will use modified Braille Challenge activities in reading and writing and compete against other emerging braille users.

There is still time to register for this year’s Ohio Regional Braille Challenge before the February 15 deadline. Download the registration form, complete it and send to Event Chair Kathy DeLaura at kathy@pinchange.com.
