Clovernook Center is honored to host the Ohio Regional Braille Challenge, part of the Braille Challenge, a national program of the Braille Institute. The National Braille Challenge inspires children in first grade through high school to embrace and excel in braille reading and writing skills. Children that may be new to braille or not competition-ready can also benefit from being part of the Challenge activities, thanks to Clovernook’s Braille Explorers category.
Typically held in March each year, students in grades 1-12 from across Ohio compete in a series of five skills contests demonstrating braille reading and comprehension, speed and accuracy, spelling, proofreading and tactile graphics.
Clovernook’s Braille Explorers category is designed for children who need a little motivation to prepare for the competition level in the future while allowing them to experience the fun and excitement of the day. Children in this category will use modified activities in reading and writing to show early braille students how braille can be a hero for us, and more importantly, how the use of braille makes each of us into a superhero.
