2020 Braille Creative Writing Contest

Event Type
Children & Youth Programs

The 2020 Braille Creative Writing Contest is now accepting entries.  Beginning this year, CNIB will be accepting entries submitted by email as well as hard-copy braille.

Since 1997, the CNIB Foundation has organized a Canada-wide Braille Creative Writing Contest for children and youth. This important competition celebrates braille literacy and encourages young people to flex their creative muscles while practicing their braille skills.

Show off your creative writing talents for a chance to win cash prizes! 

The contest is open to primary and secondary students (grades K-12) who are blind or partially sighted and live in Canada. Plus, a few lucky winners will be invited to Toronto to accept their prize in person at the Connecting the Dots Conference!

Write a short story, essay, or poem on any topic (in English or French) and submit it by May 31, 2020. Entries must be in braille and accompanied by a signed entry form.
