Oklahoma Regional Braille Challenge is a national program of the Braille Institute® hosted by Oklahoma School for the Blind. It is the only national braille literacy competition of its kind in the country, and is specifically designed to challenge and reward students for their study of braille, which is essential to their future academic and employment success. Regional students who score among the top 60 nationally are invited to Braille Institute in Los Angeles for a final competition in June!

All students in grades 1-12, who use braille are invited to participate. First, second and third place prizes will be awarded in all categories. All students will receive a commemorative t-shirt and certificate for participating in the Challenge.
