The Braille Challenge is the only academic competition of its kind in North America for students who are blind or partially sighted. Braille Institute developed the Braille Challenge to motivate students to practice and hone their braille literacy skills, which are essential to academic and employment success.

Ontario students in Grades 1-4 will have the opportunity to participate in this special event for the first time.

If your child is interested in testing their braille skills in reading, writing and spelling, join us at the CNIB GTA Community Hub for a fun, free event with food and prizes for the entire family and workshops for parents. 

Registration required. If your child is interested in participating in the braille challenge, please contact Rhonda Underhill-Gray, Program Lead, Beyond the Classroom at 416-486-2500 ext. 8313, or email

The final deadline for pre-registration for the Braille Challenge: Friday, January 17, 2020.
This is important in order to prepare for a sufficient number of volunteers including proctors and scorekeepers.
