for the annual Braille Readers Are Leaders 
contest for adults begins November 1. 
Registration for the contest is now open! You can 
register at

The contest is for adults who read Braille. There 
are categories for all levels of Braille readers,

prizes, practice, and pleasure. Whether you love

Braille skills, this contest is for you.

Braille Readers Are Leaders program?

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the K-12 
Braille Readers Are Leaders program. To celebrate 
30 years of success, later this fall we will be 
expanding the program and launching Braille 
Readers Are Leaders 360: A Community of 21st 
Century Braille Readers­the first-ever accessible 
online community for children who read Braille! 
The Braille Readers Are Leaders 360 (BRL360) 
online community will provide a safe place online 
where Braille readers in kindergarten through 
twelfth grade can share their literacy experience 
through: online discussions about their favorite 
books, book trailers, live author chats, videos 
of themselves reading Braille, and much more! 
Continuing with the Braille Readers Are Leaders 
mission, BRL360 will promote a pride in Braille 
and a joy of reading among blind children all 
year long. Stay tuned for more information about 
the expansion of our K-12 Braille Readers Are 
Leaders program. Contact us with your questions
