>The results of the Meet the Blind Month challenges are in!
>Congratulations to the North Central Chapter of the NFB of Louisiana
>and the NFB of Maine!
>The first challenge was to create a unique and innovative Meet the
>Blind Month event. The Federation has spoken, and the winner of this
>challenge is the North Central Chapter of the NFB of Louisiana.
>Although the margins were close, the North Central Chapter's effort
>to beautify a local park takes the crown.
>The chapter learned of a local beautification project and decided to
>participate by creating Braille labels for over thirty different
>trees in the park. The chapter designed the labels so that they
>could be placed alongside or near the corresponding print labels.
>They will also consider planting a tree in the name of the chapter
>soon. This was a unique way to expose the general public to the many
>uses of Braille, and to share the positive philosophy of the NFB.
>Great job North Central Chapter!
>The second challenge was open to those affiliates that did not
>participate in last year's campaign. Each event submitted by a
>qualifying affiliate earned one entry into a drawing for the
>Newcomer Challenge prize. The NFB of Maine is this year's lucky
>winner. Congratulations to the Maine affiliate for stepping up and
>participating in this year's campaign.
>Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Meet the Blind
>Month activities. A number of fantastic events were submitted, so
>thank you to everyone who cast their vote to decide this year's
>Innovative Event Challenge winner. Remember, it's never too early to
>begin planning your 2013 Meet the Blind Month events.
