Calling all aspiring young writers! The 2021 Braille Creative Writing Contest is now accepting entries.

Since 1997, CNIB 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.

Write a short story, essay, or poem on any topic or re-purpose something you've written for school this year! 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. Submissions must be received by May 31, 2021.
