The Maryland State Department of Education and
The Maryland School for the Blind
will be hosting the Maryland 2015 Regional Braille Challenge on
Saturday, February 7, 2015
Braille is an important key to literacy! It allows for the enjoyment of reading, leads to school success, and opens the doors to future employment. Come celebrate braille literacy with a day filled with fun, competition, learning, prizes, and enjoyment! In addition, bring in Braille books you no longer read for our first ever Braille book exchange!
Students who read braille in grades Prekindergarten through Grade 12 are invited to participate in the Maryland Regional Braille Challenge reading and writing contests. Parents are invited to participate in workshops while students are taking the tests. Teachers and school staff are invited to assist with test proctoring and scoring and helping to facilitate the day.
