Join the Illinois School for the Visually Impaired (ISVI) for the 2024 Central Illinois Regional Braille Challenge on Feb. 14 from 8:15 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Braille Institute started the Braille Challenge to encourage students to practice their braille literacy skills. Regional competitions take place throughout North America. Blind or visually impaired students in first through 12th grades who can read braille are eligible to compete. Two regional competitions will be in Illinois.

ISVI will host competitors and their families from throughout central Illinois.

Students will enjoy a day of:

  • Fun and friendship
  • Competing and showing off their braille skills
  • Entertainment and awards presentation

Parents can spend time listening to speakers and learning about a variety of topics while their child is competing.

See the Braille Challenge flyer for more details about both events.

You must sign and return permission forms for the competition at ISVI by Jan. 5.

You can email your form to Sara Roy at

The Northern Illinois Regional Braille Challenge will be take place in Dekalb on March 2.
