Eastern North Carolina Braille Challenge 2024

SLNC-ABLS is excited to host the Braille Challenge this year in partnership with Governor Morehead School. 

The Braille Challenge is a competition in which visually impaired students can be recognized for their skill in braille.  It also offers a unique opportunity for the top scorers to compete in the finals which are held in California.

Braille literacy is connected with future success in employment and academia.  To learn more about the Braille Challenge check out their website: About the Braille Challenge.
