           The NC Braille Literacy Council and its partners are pleased to sponsor the NC Regional Braille Challenge to be held on

February 16, 2012 on the campus of The Governor Morehead School in Raleigh and February 17, 2012 in Catawba County. Local event sponsors include the Friends of the

NC Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped and staff of the Library, the NC Department of Public Instruction, staff

of the Exceptional Children Division Vision Impairment Outreach Program, and The Governor Morehead School. 

            We appreciate the support the event has received from teachers of visually impaired students and families of students. We

hope that this year’s Challenge will be even bigger and better and that we will have several winners to qualify for the national

competition in Los Angeles to be held in June. 

            Prizes for the regional competition have been generously donated by sponsors of the National Braille Challenge and include

the Braille Institute, National Braille Press, HumanWare, Seedlings Books, Perkins School for the Blind and TopDot.
